The Flint River Greenway is a scenic trail through the Hays Nature Preserve, a wooded area where deer, rabbits, birds and other wildlife are abundant. Here, you can enjoy hiking, biking, fishing, horseback riding and picnicking.
At its northern end, the trail connects with the Big Cove Creek Greenway, which can take travelers about 3 miles north.
Future plans include extending the trail to the Goldsmith-Schiffman Wildlife Sanctuary on the other side of US 431. The sanctuary includes more than 375 acres of forested bottomlands and fallow fields dotted with ponds and swamps. An abundance of birds, deer, coyotes, wild boar and other animals call the area home.
Parking lots are available at each end of the trail in Hays Nature Preserve (7153 South US 431, Owens Cross Roads) and also off of Old Hwy 431.
