Bridging the GAP - and testing the newly completed sections.
Join me for the North Point Pkwy LOT - Big Creek Greenway & Forsyth Greenway Ride. For those of you who have not been on the FULL Big Creek Greenway, it is great! It is very well maintained, clean, pretty and challenging (sandy and damp in some spots). We might even see some wildlife. The Greenway is made up of mostly paved pathways through the woods with some boardwalks mixed in. We plan to do about 50 miles, starting from the North Point parking lot area. Once over to the UNION HILL Sk8 Park section there is a short GRAVEL section that goes up to Reagan Pkwy (and rejoins a bike path/sidewalk). From there we’ll rejoin the Greenway at Halcyon (Forsyth section (north of that is where it gets interesting, see middle of green profile map)). We'll ride to the end of the Forsyth Greenway, at the Canton Hwy junction. We’ll reach the end (re-group if necessary) grab a snack (self-supported) and head back!
|How to Get There:|
North Point Mall Trailhead
Take exit 8 off GA 400 N for Mansell Rd toward Alpharetta
Use the 2nd from the right lane to follow signs for N Point Pkwy and merge onto Mansell Rd
Use the left 3 lanes to turn left onto North Point Pkwy
Driving northbound on North Point Parkway halfway between Mansell and Haynes Bridge Roads, find the greenway sign next to the OLD Ethan Allen Showroom
Be an ambassador to the sport and be courteous #OnYourLeft
Remember it's the greenway, not a race course...don't be a FRED! yeah we like to go fast, but keep the 20+ pace for the roads
