Atlantic and Yadkin Greenway, 7.5 miles, City of Greensboro and Guilford County. The A and Y Greenway includes the Battleground Rail Trail (BRT) and the more recently designated Downtown Greenway (see one of the interesting underpasses). See the March 31, 2012 News Record article for some recent impressions of trail users. An earlier article from 2011 on Project Greenway gives commentary by community business leaders. In April 2010, Greensboro announced plans to include the BRT and Downtown Greeenway into a newly named Atlantic and Yadkin Greenway. The rail trail on the old Atlantic and Yadkin corridor connects 25-mile High Point-to-Greensboro Bicentennial Greenway to parks and a 27-mile trail system around Lake Brandt Reservoir. In August 2010, NCRT, the State of North Carolina, Piedmont Land Conservancy and the towns of Stokesdale and Summerfield signed an agreement for planning an extension towards Stokesdale that could allow future connection to the Mountains to Sea Trail. For the latest on A & Y planning please go to the A & Y Greenway Trail site . Greensboro has released a new map of the current Greenway. For connection information on the A & Y go to the Parks site. The Maps link on the Parks site contains access to maps of all of Greensboro's greenways. The Downtown Greenway site has maps showing how the 4 mile Downtown Greenway connects to the ~80 miles of trails and greenways in the Greensboro area. Contact: Harry Clapp for info. (336) 697-7499
