The Swan Creek Greenway Trail is owned and maintained by the City of Athens as an outdoor park and trail. The wooded trail parallels Swan Creek for approximately 2.3 miles, offering scenic views of small rapids and numerous pools along the tributary. The trail is very level, offering an easy walking surface with no significant incline. The greenway either runs through lands owned by the City or in easements purchased by the City. Mixed timberland is preserved along the creek and the trail.
A covered bridge and small rapids along the waterway await. A portion of the trail is asphalt, but most is crushed gravel. Courtesy: American Trails
