Big Creek Greenway
The Forsyth County Big Creek Greenway has at least 4 access points with free parking. Enter and finish at Fowler Park and you can finish with time on the playground.
The north top of the trail starting around mile marker 9 starts a steep grade, which is not suitable for beginner riders. Keep south of the Bethelview Road Trailhead access point.
Forsyth County Central Park
The paved track around the baseball tracks at Central Park is 1.1 miles and level-enough for beginner bikers to make a lap on a bicycle. Plan on making a stop at the playground when the ride is complete.
Dawson County Rock Creek Park
Rock Creek Sports Complex has a 1.1 mile, level, paved track. Start near the playground so you can have the kids spend time on the playground at the end of the lap.
Gainesville Wilshire Trails
Wilshire Trails is across the street from Longwood Park. The trail is a paved walkway starting behind a playground. Park in the lot at the intersection of Chestatee Rd and Wilshire Rd to gain access.
