Firefly Trail Expansion

Firefly Information
The Firefly Trail is a planned 39-mile rail-trail from Athens to Union Point in Northeast Georgia, connecting Athens-Clarke, Oglethorpe, and Greene Counties. The historic rail line, known as the Athens Branch of the Georgia Railroad, branched off the still-active Augusta-to-Atlanta line in Union Point and passed through the towns of Woodville, Maxeys, Stephens, Crawford, Arnoldsville and Winterville on its way to Athens.

The trail will allow for pedestrian and bicyclist alike to safely participate in activities within Athens-Clarke County without being within close motor vehicle proximity. This project includes design, engineering, and right of way acquisition in preparation for immediate trail construction.
