The Greenway is a partnership between Waynesville, Haywood County, and NC DOT. Additional assistance has been provided by Lake Junaluska. In addition to hiking, jogging, and bicycling the greenway trail, you may enjoy the following activities: floating on the creek, fishing, and visting the various recreation areas located along the greenway.

The purpose of this greenway trail is to connect to Lake Junaluska and to provide an alternative transportation option that links businesses, schools, recreation areas, and residential communities. In addition, the greenway serves as an outdoor classroom for local schools and offers educational opportunities to help the public understand and appreciate the environmental aspects of the corridor.
