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. This makes the Carrollton GreenBelt a viable, safe, motor-free and healthy way to reach points of interest throughout 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

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.
