The opening of the Forsyth Big Creek Greenway Phase 1 from Highway 9 to McFarland Parkway has been pushed back due to heavy rains in the area. The new official trail opening will be on Friday December 4th at 10:30am. There will be a ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of the new 4 mile section of the greenway.
Heavy rains in the area have pushed Big Creek to near flood stage. With additional heavy rain expected in the area, it will likely go over the minor flood stage of 7 feet at Kimball Bridge. At the time of this article it was already at 6.7 feet. Use caution visiting the trails when water levels begin to reach minor flood stage.
We’ll keep you up to date as we find out more about the opening of the trail Friday, including where the ribbon cutting will take place and if the ceremony gets pushed back due to the weather again.
