    The Big Creek Greenway is a great park resource for Forsyth. However, it looks like not nearly enough parking or Greenway access points are available. Sunday 02/20 the Bethelview trailhead was full and cars parked up and down the road on the shoulders of Bethelview. Also cars were parked on the shoulder where Castleberry intersects Hwy 9. I think it is just a matter of time before we have an accident with people trying to create parking spaces. As spring arrives this situation will just get worse.

    I live in Vickery and have tried riding my bike the 1-mile to where the Greenway intersects Majors road. Unfortunately the cars do not abide by the 35 mph speed limit and I did not feel safe. There is lots of parking at the Vickery Village. Do you know if anyone has looked at a walking/bike path from Vickery, down Majors Road to the Greenway? This one-mile stretch has a nice wide shoulder that would easily accommodate a walking/bike path. This seems to be a very cost effective way to add parking and access to the Greenway.

    Please let me know your thoughts, and whom you might suggest I contact about adding access to the Greenway from Vickery.

    Cheers
