 Runners on Battleground Rail-Trail
The Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway was formed as a combination of the Lake Brandt Greenway, Battleground Rail Trail, and Bicentennial Greenway. The A&Y Greenway travels 7.5 miles from Markland Drive north to US 220 in Summerfield. The A&Y is named after the abandoned Atlantic and Yadkin Railroad whose rail bed the greenway uses for most of its path.

For more information on the A&Y Greenway, see the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department's A&Y Greenway page

Future Extensions

The Greensboro Urban Area MPO worked with the Towns of Summerfield and Stokesdale in early 2012 to complete the A&Y Greenway Extension Feasibility Study. The feasibility study examines options for extending the greenway from US 220 northward to Stokesdale. 

An extension to the south will eventually connect the current southern terminus at Markland Drive to Spring Garden Street. The portion of the A&Y Greenway extension to the south between Smith Street and Spring Garden Street will serve as Phase 4 of the Downtown Greenway. The timeline for the extension is uncertain since the rail line is still in use south of Markland Drive.
