smith river greenway
This popular trail is 1.5 miles long and paved, extending between the Eden Family YMCA on Kennedy Street and Island Ford Landing with a variety of interesting plants and wildlife found along the trail. From the circle, the Greenway can be accessed by crossing the Smith River on Meadow Road and turning right. Parking, picnic shelter and rest room facilities are available at the trailhead. Benches are located along the trail. The Eden greenway along the Smith River was a project of one of DRBA's founders, Mike Covey. The next phase of the planned citywide system will extend the greenway up river beyond the bridge toward the Spray dam. DRBA thanks City of Eden Mayor John Grogan, members of the Eden City Council, planning director Kelly Stultz, Sam W. Smith, Inc., and the Annie Penn Community Trust (now the Reidsville Area Foundation) for making the greenway a reality.
