Current Trail Status
In order to maintain the integrity of our trails, trails may be temporarily closed or under restricted use advisories throughout the year. Temporary closures are usually due to maintenance; restricted use advisories are usually due to weather.
We ask that users refrain from accessing our natural surface trails during wet conditions.Trail use during wet conditions is not only dangerous, but it can seriously damage natural surface trails. It can also have a negative environmental impact.
For more information and any questions, please call the Trails and Open Space Supervisor at 706-613-3620.
Beginning mid-June 2020, Sandy Creek Nature Center will begin work on a Nature Playscape in the garden area behind the building. Please watch out for vehicles using the Greenway to access this construction area behind Sandy Creek Nature Center. This project is expected to continue through September. Occasional Greenway trail closures for tree felling and large equipment may be necessary but are not expected to take very long. The garden area behind the Education & Visitor Center is closed along with the service road from the Greenway leading up to the building. The ADA Trail, water fountains, & exterior restroom are still available for use.
