The Swan Creek Greenway Trail offers natural beauty as winds its way through the forest along Swan Creek. Trail-goers will enjoy views of a covered bridge, gentle rapids and glimpses of wildlife. The first half-mile of the trail's northern end is asphalt, while the rest of the 2-mile trail is crushed gravel. The trail connects many recreational facilities, including the state-of-the-art Athens Sportsplex at its northern tip.
Parking and Trail Access
To reach the Sportsplex trailhead at the trail's northern end, travelers on Interstate 65 should take exit 354 (US Highway 31 South). After driving 0.9 mile, turn left at the first light into Sportsplex Park. Go 0.6 mile until the road ends and turn left into the trail parking lot.
Love it! It's beautiful. My dogs love it too. The length is good when walking smaller dogs.
a little tricky to navigate
Nice trail. Good for pedestrians, dogs, bikes (although there are a couple of blind corners). Friendly people. Busy on nice days.
About .6 miles from the north end, the trail forks; the paved branch goes on to the athletic fields of the local high ...
Nice short trail
This is a nice short trail i think it could be a little wider and longer but over all its not a bad trail mostly flat and quiet and peaceful, bikers look out for runners around curves and the bridge is very narrow...I will ride again...
