Carrollton GreenBelt Description

The Carrollton GreenBelt is the largest greenspace and greenway conservation project ever undertaken in the city of Carrollton's almost 200-year history. The 16-mile paved loop runs along public easements through sites of historic interest, commercial venues, local landmarks and more, providing residents and visitors a unique escape. 

The trail network connects several of the city's established neighborhoods, and runs through numerous city parks, including East Carrollton Park, Hays Mill Park, Hobbs Farm Park and Lakeshore Park, providing space for recreation and promoting a healthy lifestyle in the city.  

But more than a recreational venue, the Carrollton GreenBelt also connects numerous destinations frequented by area residents and visitors, including the University of West Georgia, Carrollton City Schools, McIntosh Plaza shopping center (home of Target, Publix and other retailers), Southwire Company, Sunset Hills Country Club and Maple Street Commons.

Parking and Trail Access

Free parking is available at each trailhead site, and pavilions can be found at many of them. The trailheads are located at:

  • Hobbs Farm Park (travel north on Rome Street; right at Believer's Boulevard)
  • Hays Mill Park (trailhead located immediately north of Hays Mill Overlook Subdivision)
  • Lakeshore Park (trailhead parking located across from the tennis courts on Lakeshore Drive)
  • East Carrollton Park (Northside Drive; parking located near the soccer and softball fields)
  • Fire Station #24 (intersection of Bankhead Highway and Northside Drive; parking at pavilion behind the fire station on Fire Station Road)

More options are listed on the Friends of the Carrollton Greenbelt website

Carrollton GreenBelt Reviews

My wife and I did this simple loop around the city at an avg of 11mph. One of the most pleasant enjoyable rides Ive ever had. We have Trek ebikes but also have regular bikes. We rode ebikes this time. Shouldnt be any issue for anyone. Awesome flow through many different types of areas.

Coming from Sarasota, Florida where our Tamiami Trail is flat, has no scenery and is barely shaded, my husband and I really enjoyed the ups and downs, the scenery and the shaded portions. We completed it two consecutive days, Saturday and Sunday starting after 3 PM.

What a fantastic trail! Alot of planning and investment went into this trail. Great mix of water and forest and parks and some residential. Close to city but mostly away from noise and traffic. We completed the whole circle and enjoy a two hour Sunday afternoon outing. We have biked in 30 states and this was one of the most enjoyable city greenbelts. Congratulations to the city and those involved with this trail!


I enjoyed this trail so much. I road 10miles with the ease. The trail is beautiful.

The Carrollton GreenBelt is a 18-mile shared-use path designed for pedestrians and non-motorized users. Once complete, the trail will connect existing neighborhoods with the city school campus, the University of West Georgia, the city parks, and several commercial shopping areas.

I grew up in Carrollton, Ga. but have not lived in this area for almost 20 years. When I come back to visit friends and family, with my children, I am forced to get creative in regards to fun and healthy activities. But no more! Now that the GreenBelt is up and running I need to look no further. Today my daughter and I enjoyed over an hour of easy riding on a beautiful winter day. What a joy to have such a great outdoor alternative in Carrollton. Long overdue but worth the wait.
