Buncombe County Greenways are open pathways safely connecting our parks, schools and communities. Greenways and trails are designated for bicycling, walking and similar uses along corridors that connect natural areas, parks, cultural attractions, neighborhoods, schools, community destinations and commercial areas. Greenways are greener, kinder, smarter, safer and healthier ways to connect cities and towns across the county.

Area Greenways

Municipalities in Buncombe County are already developing greenways. Buncombe County is working to connect the existing greenways to each other, as well as build more. Get out there and connect on greenways!
