The Purple Martin Greenway is a great new trail in the county. It is a 2-mile, 10-foot wide paved trail that connects Kiwanis Park and Crestview Park.

The greenway is a very family friendly place with lots of shade and access points to Cleghorn Creek. The southern section of the greenway has a very nice
cascade on the creek. There are multiple picnic shelters. The trail gets great use, you will see many families, dogs, runners and walkers. It is open
to cyclists as well.

The trail can be accessed from multiple parking areas including:

Corner of Industrial Drive and S. Main St.

Bring a Map

Keep your maps in a plastic bag to protect them from the rain and know how to use them. GPS units are great, but they are not substitutes for knowing how to use a map and compass.
