Firefly Trail - Hancock Road to Downtown Winterville Segment
Check out the results of our recent public input sessions!
This project is the final piece of the Firefly Trail within Athens-Clarke County limits. This connection starts at Hancock Road and traverses mostly along the original railroad bed. It follows along Spring Valley Road until turning towards Winterville at the intersection of Athens Road and N Main Street.
This project includes the establishment of an improved surface trail for non-motorized vehicles along the historic Georgia Railroad corridor within the city limits of Winterville between Moores Grove Road and the Athens-Clarke County Line. The trail will allow for pedestrian and bicyclist alike to safely participate in activities within Athens-Clarke County without being within close motor vehicle proximity. This project includes design, engineering, and right of way acquisition in preparation for immediate trail construction.
