Ivy Creek Greenway follows its namesake waterway in Buford, which lies in the northeastern Atlanta region. Highlights of the trip include the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center, Woodward Mill Historic Site, and the sprawling Mall of Georgia. The route also has a 400-foot-long boardwalk over the creek. There is some traffic noise as the trail approaches I-85, but it is otherwise quiet.
Future plans call for extending the greenway west to the beautiful and popular Suwanee Creek Greenway
Parking is available at the trail's western end at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center (2020 Clean Water Drive).
