The Greenway access point for the Alpharetta segment along Big Creek is located in Rock Mill Park. Rock Mill Park is a passive park and has attractive photo backdrops and picnic pavilions. Big Creek is more visible along this Alpharetta stretch of the Greenway than along the other segments. Fortunately, benches were placed at some of the spots where the stream is accessible. The river is clean. There are however storm water sewers along the route. Some tanks are rather large and vented. When the wind is just right, you may get a whiff of sewer gas.

beautiful scenery, river smells very stagnate, the odor is a bit distracting

The parking lot on McFarland Pkwy is not as large as the one on Bethelview Rd and neither does it have restrooms. The lot fills up fast. Busy trail this Labor Day weekend. Watch out for Bikers.

This is my go to for walking my dog on my off days from running. It's easy, pretty, and quiet. A nice sense of community as everyone from all walks enjoy strolling here. A lot of dogs. I like to note places I can get away with having my dog off leash (she's very well behaved and trained) but this is not one of those places. It's just a little too travelled and I want to be respectful of the rules (at least when other people are around). Best part for me is it's not paved or board walked like many area parks are.

It was fun and easy! Great for kids! It was a great trail!!!

Nice, wide trails. Many benches scattered throughout the trail to provide rest stops. I love the water features such as the cascades, pond, and waterfall. Dog friendly. Great place for photographers.
