​12 Trails to Traverse

Whether you're running, walking, biking or hiking, Gwinnett's got some great trails.

Believe it or not, Spring is just around the corner. After being cooped up from all the rain, clouds and cold we've had lately, warmer weather will be a welcome change. Here are eleven trails you should try to embrace beautiful days.

1. George Pierce Park. Part of the Ivy Creek Greenway, you'll find a great 2.5 mile walking trail here. If you're up for a longer walk or run, this path also connects to the Suwanee Greenway.

2. Harbins Park. If you like mountain biking, you'll find 13 miles of trail here. The park also has 7 miles of equestrian trails and 4.5 miles of hiking trails.

3. Little Mulberry Park. Here you'll find 15 miles of paved and non paved trails for multi-use,  including 3.6 for hiking  and 5.7 for equestrian.

9. Simpsonwood Park. Enjoy the scenery of a meadow as you walk or run the 3.1 miles of trails at Simpsonwood Park.

10. Suwanee Creek Greenway. This hard-surface, multipurpose is perfect for walkers and bikers alike. The trail meanders through four miles of wooded areas, wetlands, and wildlife habitat.

11. Tribble Mill Park. Not only can you catch some good trails here, but you can also catch fish. With 3.4 miles of multi-purpose trail, soft surface trails for equestrian and biking and a Cross Country Course, this park has got it all.

12. Yellow River Park. If you're looking for something a little more challenging, this park offers 12 miles of soft surface trail for equestrian, biking and hiking.

Of course, there are so many more parks than what's listed here. I hope you'll get out and enjoy a few of them. Be sure to check the Gwinnett County Parks and Rec page for closures and up to date information.
