Lots of shade and always busy with people. The northern route, past Bethelview Road is really steep and difficult to walk, let alone bike or ride anything. Parking at Fowler Park is plentiful, so I usually park there.

This is one of the best things to do in Forsyth County. Can't wait until it's expanded even further. Good bike trail, can be slippery after a rain though. Mostly shady.

The track is very well maintained. Ample parking, easy access and clean restrooms make it a very pleasant experience. It helps us bond as a family walking and talking down the wide track.

Listen to frogs, see birds and tadpoles, enjoy the shade from the trees as you walk on the Big Creek Greenway. A lovely get away to nature right next to home.

Not at this point. There is a development underway on McFarland at the trail head that will have a coffee shop when it's complete, but it's pretty far off.
