Stay Current with Greensboro Trail Planning
The Greensboro Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) adopted the Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Greenway Master Plan (BiPed) in 2006. The BiPed Plan is now undergoing its first update. Goals include noting accomplishments since adoption, streamlining content for easier readability, and updating BiPed priorities.

The update will also provide residents an opportunity to refine, expand, and prioritize the original recommendations. A series of public workshops throughout the MPO area will give residents an opportunity to provide input on the BiPed update. For more information on upcoming public workshops visit the BiPed Update page.

Trails & Marina Access
Lake Higgins and Lake Brandt Marina offer parking access to many of our hiking and mountain biking trails including:
  • Lake Higgins Trail 
  • Bald Eagle Trail 
  • Nat Greene Trail 
  • Jesse Wharton Interpretive Trail 
  • Wild Turkey Trail 

Park gates close at various times throughout the year, so be aware of posted closing times. If you don't get your vehicle by closing, it may be locked in the marina. If this happens, call the Greensboro Police Department at 336-373-2222 and ask to be let out or leave your vehicle until gates open in the morning. Check the City Lakes Web page for more information on closing times. 

Hiking and Mountain Biking Trails Now Have Rescue Markers
These trails have been updated with new trail markers. The markers, posted every quarter mile, contain safety information, trail mileage, and a unique number for each trail. Use these markers to keep track of your location, which is especially important if you ever need to let emergency services know where you are, and please carry a cell phone at all times.
