South Hall trail system being considered
Officials hope to do study using federal planning money
A portion of the underground pedestrian tunnel is completed on the Department of Labor side of Atlanta Highway, but construction continues on the other side of the road. Federal funding is being sought for studying a multi-use trail connecting Oakwood and Sterling on the Lake in Flowery Branch.
A trail system extending deep into South Hall from the Highlands to Islands trail ending near the University of North Georgia’s campus in Oakwood is being explored by government officials. The potential multi-use trail would run between Mundy Mill Road in Oakwood to Friendship Road/Ga. 347 near Flowery Branch and Buford. It would run along Thurmon Tanner Parkway, Atlanta Highway/Ga. 13, Hog Mountain Road, Spout Springs Road, Capitola Farm Road, then cut through Sterling on the Lake subdivision before resuming on Blackjack Road near Cherokee Bluffs Park.
