“This ~8 mile, wooded oasis is a wonderful escape! The trail is paved for walking, running, or biking and is lined with trees, natural water features, and full of cute, little creatures. The noise from the busy street & all the cares in the world disappear when on the trail. *You can rent bikes from the nearby YMCA if you want to ride the trail, but didn't bring yours. ”

“The Big Creek Greenway is located right in Alpharetta and it is a great place to take a walk, ride a bike or go for a jog or run on the seven plus miles of trails. You can also bring a pet as long as they are on a leash. In 2016 the City of Alpharetta partnered with Zagster, Inc to provide free bike share for Big Creek Greenway users. Bikes can be rented for up to 3 hrs free of charge. Stations are now located at 4 stops along the Big Creek Greenway Locations: Big Creek Park (Roswell, GA) North Point Parkway - Greenway Parking Lot Rock Mill Park Ed Isakson YMCA”
