Big Creek Greenway Phases 4 & 5

The following is a description of the proposed project: 
The proposed Greenway trail will begin at the end of Phase 3 of the Big Creek Greenway and will travel approximately seven miles to the Sawnee Mountain Preserve Visitor Center located on Spot Road. The proposed trail will serve as a multi-use trail and will consist of a twelve-foot wide paved path, including portions of boardwalk as well as pedestrian bridges, as necessary. The project also proposes three trailhead locations which will provide for parking and restroom facilities. In addition to the trail and trailhead construction, landscaping and other hardscape appurtenances will be provided.

Construction of Phase 4 is complete and is open to the public.  This twelve foot wide multi-use trail begins at Bethelview Big Creek Trailhead and continues along Big Creek for approximately 2.1 miles, running parallel to Kelly Mill Road for approximately .75 miles and ending at Johnson Road.

Big Creek Greenway Phase 5A and 5B presently under construction.  Construction began fall 2019.
