Highlands to Islands Trail signs installed
Highlands To Islands is a multi-use trail system connecting the cities in Hall County, from Lake Lanier in Gainesville to Chicopee Woods and beyond. The trail starts at Longwood Park in Gainesville with the Rock Creek Greenway, continues through the Downtown Square and over Jesse Jewell via the pedestrian bridge, through the Midtown Greenway, and to the University of North Georgia. This paved path winds past businesses, scenic areas, college campuses and retail shops.
The City of Gainesville recently installed signs along the trail. The city is currently seeking a contractor to construct the Palmour Drive connection. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2019.
The Highlands to Islands Trail Alliance is an organization that supports and champions the trail. Click here for more information: http://highlandstoislands.org/.
