Are other trails proposed for Northeast Georgia?

Yes. The big vision is that the Firefly Trail will be the first part of a network of trails serving the entire region, including Watkinsville, Madison and Greensboro. Also, we are in the process of improving the bicycle and sidewalk infrastructure within Athens-Clarke County and expanding the Greenway network (a Greenway extension that is accessible from the Firefly Trail’s Old Winterville Road trailhead opened in 2018).
