The PINEHURST GREENWAY TRAIL SYSTEM weaves in and around the Village of Pinehurst and all the surrounding neighborhoods. The Pinehurst Greenway is a fairly new project and I think it gives our Village a greater sense of community. I LOVE it!!!
I'm lucky, because part of the trail is located behind my house. This section of boardwalk here is just one of the wooden bridges constructed over some of the wetlands that can be found on the Pinehurst Greenway.
There are currently over 5.8 miles of trails that have been completed. The Greenway Master Plan consists of a total of 24 miles. The Greenway Trail is for pedestrian and bicycling ONLY. Sorry, no golf carts allowed (no motorized vehicles at all).
There is a Committee, The Greenway Wildlife Habitat Committee, that spends their time identifing plants and animal habitats that should be saved/restored/enhanced along the Greenway. Many plants and trees have been identified with 'signage' along the trail. There is also a Butterfly Garden located near the section of trail that runs behind the Fitness Center.
Some of the wildlife that I've observed on the Greenway are: Deer, Squirrels (of course), Lots & Lots of Birds, Rabbits, Snakes, Racoon, Fox & Frogs.

See ya on the Trail!!!
