Suwanee has been trying to hold on to their 2006 Money Magazine title of one of the Top 10 best cities to raise a family. Other nearby cities have passed them by. I will say their parks are great like Suwanee Creek Greenway and Sims Lake park, but they are run by Gwinnett County. If you live here, they are great. Otherwise, close areas like Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Sugar Hill, Duluth, Buford have much more to offer in the way of activities and nicer neighborhoods. Suwannee it's 2017.

This connects lots of different stop/start locations - lot's of people walking, running, and biking. Lot's of cover so the paths are well shaded.

This greenway connects with trails in George Pierce Park and is 6 miles in length and provides great views of undisturbed wetlands and forest where I often see wildlife. The trails are bike friendly, well maintained, and consist of an assortment of boardwalks and paved pathways. There is occasional flooding of trails with heavy rain. Some caution is needed since the trails are not very wide and are often busy with walkers who never seem to know where to position themselves as bikes approach.

The majority of the terrain is fairly flat but there are some moderate hilly areas at each end. Once in George Pierce Park there are miles of trails rambling through forest that provide moderate effort to negotiate. On the north side of the trail there is boardwalk access to Suwanee Town Park that is also bike friendly. Public bathrooms are available at each end of the trail and in Suwanee Town Park.

This group of trails are my favorite go to when I've waited until the middle of the day to ride when it is extremely hot since the majority of the trails are heavily forested and are therefore shady. You can entertain yourself for hours exploring and there are dirt trails through the woods at each end for those looking for easy to moderate mountain bike challenges. I highly recommend exploring this network of trails on bike.

What a fabulous resource this amazing multi park multi-mile greenway is. Riding a bike on a regular Road is mortifying to think the drivers are out there with your cell phones ready to run over you. This Greenway gives you miles and miles of secluded and isolated trails, some paved, some packed stone and some elevated deck. Wonderful family outing with my teenage girls who at first roll their eyes at the silliness of a "bike ride", but then end up absolutely loving it particularly if we work off about 4000 calories riding the bikes and then stop at mellow mushroom pizza in Suwanee town green as part of the bike ride circuit and just pile the calories back on;). Net zero on the weight loss maybe but "priceless" on the family togetherness and taking in the great outdoors. I marvel and applaud our city and community leaders who have worked so hard to piece together complicated zones of park land and right of ways across and under streets to make this happen. I have great respect for you! Suwanee councilman Dan Foster is one of those civic leaders whom I applaud for service to the community!

This is a great place to run. It is through the woods, so it is serene. You can see an occasional deer/doe trotting by.
