Suwanee Creek Greenway

Average Rating:    (3.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

It’s time to run...walk...pedal...stroll...and roll! The Suwanee Creek Greenway is a hard-surface, multipurpose trail that meanders through four miles of wooded areas, wetlands, and wildlife habitat. The original trail was constructed in the early 1990s; a three-mile extension was opened in May 2004. The greenway connects nearly 400 acres of parkland as well as residential and commercial areas. Walkers, joggers, bikers, rollerbladers, and others can access the trail at a variety of locations. The trailhead is located at Suwanee Creek Park, 1170 Buford Highway. Other access points are: Near the Suwanee Sports Academy at 3640 Burnette Road. Martin Farm Park, about a half-mile west of Satellite Boulevard. Suwanee Elementary School, on weekends and after 4 p.m. during the week only. George Pierce Park, near the soccer and back softball fields.

Summary:
Was looking for an after hours place to ride during the week in the fall/winter seeing as harbins and tribble mill close at sunset. A friend and I did the ride from George Pierce Park to Suwanee Creek Park and back at about 9pm. Great night ride after work to get the heart pumping a little bit. Fairly flat with a few small hills. It is VERY dark back in the woods/swamp so have a good light if you intend to ride at night.

Recommended Route:
Started at the soccerfields at George Pierce, go down through the parking lot to the set of concrete stairs that lead to the gravel pathway, make a left. Follow the greenway all the way to Suwanee Creek Park.

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Summary:
I ride my mountain bike on the trail (12 miles total) in about 55 minutes. Put in at George Pierce end at Suwanee Park then loop and go back. Its a nice ride if you can beat the "after work" traffic of walkers and runners who don't know they are supposed to share the road and stay to the right. There are many unmarked trails towards around George Park entrance which are advanced Mountain Bike trails but the rest of the ride is pretty calm. A couple of hills will take your breath for a minute but thats about it. The scenery is beautiful.

Recommended Route:
Park at first parking lot from George Pierce entrance. Cross the street to trail head and follow all the way around park, down huge hill, and through woods. Cross boardwalk to paved area. Cross through Martin Farms Park, down the board walk and under McGinnis Ferry. Continue on to the Suwanee Park and loop around (using off-road trail). And then back to the car but around the pond this time.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Big Creek, Fort Yargo, Chickapee Woods

Summary:
While the trail is scenic and well maintained, it has a lot of different types of users not overly compatible with bike riders. You will find lots of mothers with strollers, high school runners hogging the road, peopole on the wrong side not paying attention, etc. It is also not very difficult . However, for beginners who just want to coast along, it is a very good trail.

Summary:
This trail is fantastic. It is a mixture of paved trails and elevated wooden platforms. Think of it as a pier with no end. :) That had to elevate the trail with the wood which actually is more like a long bridge than a pier because of the flooding from the Suwanee Creek. This way it doesn't destroy the trail. Near the end of the trail where you go from Suwanee Elementary to George Piece Park it is not paved. I've taken this route once and really enjoyed the riding through the woods.

Recommended Route:
Start at Suwanee Creek Park and ride until you are tired. :)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Still looking.
