Greensboro’s Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway
The Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway is a long greenway that is the union of several paths such as the Lake Brandt Greenway, Battleground Rail Trail, and the Bicentennial Greenway. Those paths along with the old abandoned Atlantic-Yadkin Railroad bed make up the new Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway. The present rail trail starts well within Greensboro and continues through Battleground Park and Bur-Mil Park along Lake Brandt lets everyone enjoy the beauty of nature. There are plenty of scenic overlooks, bridges over the lakes, benches to take advantage of the natural beauty of our parks and natural lands. This is one of my favorite places to exercise. I ride my bike from the beginning of the trail which starts behind the Target shopping center on Lawndale Drive all the way to Summerfield, NC. It is wonderful way to exercise riding among the trees and on a smooth wide asphalt trail. My rides are usually around 18 miles long in a round trip from one end of the paved trail to the other also taking in a lap through Country Park and Battleground Park. It is very nice to not have to ride my bike on the roads. By using the greenways one only has to cross a few roads and you do not worry about riding in traffic at all.
