The Coastal Georgia Greenway is envisioned as a 450-mile trail system, which will connect South Carolina to Florida through Georgia’s six coastal counties. This alternative transportation network will link the towns, attractions, recreational sites, historic and cultural sites, waterways and natural habitats of the coast.
A series of trails suitable for bicyclists, joggers, equestrians, canoeists, kayakers, and other non-motorized users will be built. The centerpiece of the Coastal Georgia Greenway is a continuous trail connecting South Carolina to Florida as part of the East Coast Greenway along various north-south routes including the U.S. Highway 17 corridor, abandoned rail corridors, and historic canal corridors, from which visitors can sample coastal imagery
Incorporated in October 2009, the Coastal Georgia Greenway, Inc. mission states: “The Coastal Georgia Greenway, Inc. (CGG, Inc.) works with citizens, governments and private economic interests to create a 450-mile regional greenway and multi-use trail system that will conserve the unique natural and cultural resources of Georgia’s coast while safely providing alternative transportation, educational, recreational and tourism opportunities for the enjoyment and health of both residents and visitors.
” The Coastal Georgia Greenway is being built by public-private partnerships of local jurisdictions, bike clubs, non-profit organizations and citizens who are cooperating to build the trails.
