Two segments of Phase V of the Big Creek Greenway trail
system are now open following a ribbon cutting ceremony held on June 3.
For pictures and video of the ribbon cutting ceremony, please click here.
One of the segments of Phase V extends the Greenway from the
intersection of Kelly Mill Road and Johnson Road to Canton Hwy. (SR 20), a
distance of 2.27 miles. The other segment of Phase V now open originates at the
intersection of SR 20 and the Spot Road Connector. That segment travels along
the Spot Road Connector, Doc Bramblett Road and Spot Road, ending at the Sawnee
Mountain Preserve and Visitor Center, a distance of 2.48 miles.
In the future, an additional one-mile segment of Phase V
will run parallel to SR 20, connecting all portions of the Greenway. This
segment will be constructed at a later date as part of the planned GDOT
widening of Canton Hwy.
When complete, Phase V of the Greenway will extend the
multi-use trail an additional 5.7 miles from Kelly Mill Road to the Sawnee
Mountain Preserve Visitor Center (4075 Spot Road), making the entire Forsyth
County Big Creek Greenway just over 16.5 miles in length.
Funding for this project was provided by the Parks,
Recreation and Green Space Bond & SPLOST.
