Greensboro’s network of trails and greenways offers a variety of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors while being physically active. The trails are located in urban and natural settings, and can be found in neighborhood and regional parks, open spaces, and around the City's three lakes.
These hiking, biking, and multiple-use trails incorporate some sidewalk connectors and include paved and natural surfaces. Take a leisurely stroll on one of the paved greenways, hike through the woods along the shores of one of the lakes, or bike on one of the best urban mountain biking trails in the country. Whatever your interest, the trails are available year-round for your enjoyment.
The Trails Division of the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department was founded in 1997 with the purpose of maintaining existing trails and fostering the development of a more comprehensive trails system. Prior to 1997, the trails of Greensboro were developed and maintained by various sections of the Parks and Recreation Department, including Regional Parks, the Park Maintenance Division, and City Lakes. Volunteer assistance from local clubs has been an important resource for the Trails Division. Their efforts have contributed to the construction and maintenance of trails, bridges, and boardwalks.
