The North Oconee River Greenway is a 3.5-mile long, 10-foot wide, paved multi-use path open to all types of non-motorized uses. The trail runs from Sandy Creek Nature Center (connecting with Cook's Greenway Trail), following the North Oconee River south to Dudley Park.
Within the 1/2-mile section from Dudley Park to Wilkerson Street, you'll find a series of interpretive panels that illustrate Athens' rich history. Learn about the North Oconee River, the former Cook and Brother Amory/Chicopee Mill, Dudley Park, Athens' railroad and more. Parking, picnicking and recreational areas are located along the Greenway.
It's open daily from sunrise to sunset. During heavy rains the trail is prone to flooding where it nears the river.
Three connector trails link to the greenway:
The Greenway is located in Athens, GA. Parking is available in Dudley Park at the southern terminus of the trail (S. Poplar and Oak streets), in Riverside Park (Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Parkway and Ruth Street) and at the Sandy Creek Nature Center, at the northern terminus of the trail (Old Commerce Road).
