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.

For more information and any questions, please call the Trails and Open Space Supervisor at 706-613-3620.


Alert IconBeginning mid-June 2020, Sandy Creek Nature Center began 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. 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.

Beginning March 17, 2021, please avoid the caution taped/fenced areas at the back of Ben Burton Park on the riverside looping trail. These areas have subsurface erosion that could cause the trail to collapse.

Beginning March 21, 2021, please use caution when riding the Drive-By-Truckers (Blue) Trail and Uphill Return Trail at Walker Park due to nearby construction by Georgia Power Company. Trails are still open and operational at this time.


Seasonalwater droplet rains will often flood our low lying trails, especially those next to rivers or creeks. When trails flood or become impassable due to environmental conditions, this water droplet will appear next to their name below. If you are out on the trails and have found one impassable due to high water, please call us at 706-613-3620 Mon-Fri so we can update our list here. 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.
