Update: As of 2017, a segment of trail between Battleground Avenue and Wellspring Retirement Community has been closed due to the construction on I-73.
The Bicentennial Greenway is a 14.5-mile paved pathway connecting the City of Greensboro to the City of High Point, NC. The trail, which is a joint effort of the two cities and Guilford County, exists in two as yet unconnected segments. The northern segment lies entirely in Greensboro, stretching from Old Battleground Road & Costwold Avenue, to Market Street. The trail picks back up a short distance south-west, at Burnt Poplar Road and terminates at Penny Road, right on High Point Lake. There are plans to construct sidewalks on Swing Street to bridge the gap, but trail users will still be required to share the road with vehicles along Burnt Poplar.
The trail, a combination of off-road asphalt and sidewalks, weaves through residential neighborhoods, mixed forests of hardwoods and pine, parks and natural areas. It connects to amenities including shopping areas and schools. It’s open to non-motorized usage, and birding is an exciting activity on the trail, particularly around the Piedmont Environmental Center at the trail’s southern end. The trail links up with the Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway at its northern terminus.
The trail is accessible at several points along its length. Parking is available at Kernodle Middle School (3600 Drawbridge Pkwy, Greensboro); Leonard Recreation Center (6324 Ballinger Rd) and at the trailhead at Wagon Place near Western Guilford High School (409 Friendway Rd).
