The Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway (A&Y), Greensboro’s only current Rail Trail, provides opportunities to catch a glimpse of nature as well as reach urban destinations. Spot common and migratory birds, including bald eagles, blue herons, egrets, ospreys, and several duck species as you travel through the watershed. Many native plants and wildflowers grow in the shadows of mixed hardwoods and pines along this abandoned railway also. Take a break at the H. Michael Weaver Bridge to enjoy the scenic beauty of Lake Brandt. The A&Y provides a scenic alternative transportation route to Battleground Avenue for bicycle and pedestrian commuters. This greenway will encourage residents to travel via the greenway between businesses along the corridor.
