Blue HeronBlue Heron Trail (3.25 miles)
  • Surface: Natural 
  • Traffic: Hiking & Biking 

Blue Heron offers an extension of the Reedy Fork trail via N. Church Street. The Greensboro Fat Tire Society began work on constructing Blue Heron spring 2009. The trail skirts along the shore line of beautiful Lake Townsend. There is plenty of variety too as the trail leads you out of the woods for multiple power line crossings. A few sections have deep gullies and dips that are fun to blast through and out of on your bike. Blue Heron flows great and is relatively easy for any rider or hiker to tackle.

Please Note:

Blue Heron Trail is designed for the enjoyment of mountain biking enthusiasts and hikers. Cyclists are asked to yield trail right-of-way to hikers. Please avoid riding after rainfall when the trails are muddy.
