Grab your four-legged friends, your best running shoes, and LEGS go out to the greenway! The first leg of the Sugar Hill Greenway is open and ready for feet to hit the ground running! 5 miles out of the planned 16.5-mile trail is now complete and connects downtown to neighborhoods, schools, and parks.
Within the Sugar Hill Greenway is a trail, with a paved path intended for shared use by pedestrians, bicyclists, wheelchair users, joggers, and other non-motorized users.
Greenspace is an essential component of a healthy community, providing a variety of benefits that are critical to our well-being. It offers a space for us to connect with nature, get fresh air and exercise, and promote mental and physical health. The trail is a safe and accessible space for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy the outdoors and connect with each other.

At the corner of West Broad Street and Church Street, this downtown park is the start of the Greenway. Begin your walk at mile marker zero and head down Church Street and on to Level Creek Road to enjoy the trail.
Enter the woods just past Sugar Hill Elementary School. The path leads through the park to Peachtree Industrial Boulevard. Parking is in the lower lot near PIB.
As you walk South on PIB, you will enter the park where there is parking, a splash pad, park trails and other amenities.
Cross Level Creek Road and enter Gold Mine Park. Parking will be available as well as a restroom and an overlook of the Simmons Mine, active in the 1800s through early 1900s. You can either take the sidewalk on Level Creek back to Mile Marker Zero or continue through the woods to Whitehead Road. This densely forested section of the trail crosses Level Creek itself, several boardwalks and bridges and ultimately exits at Whitehead Road. Turn right and use the sidewalks to return to Downtown Sugar Hill or continue south to Bethany Church.
As you head south, walking along Whitehead Road, the trail goes down the hill, meanders through a swampy wetland and follows a creek under the road to a parking area in front of Bethany Church.
