Rent a Zagster bike for up to three hours for free to explore the Big Creek Greenway. This 8-mile and 12-foot-wide paved path allows for biking, walking, roller blading, and inline skating along creek. Birds and mammals, flora and fauna, can be seen from the trail. Access points are at the YMCA at Preston Ridge Road, or North Point Parkway or Haynes Bridge Road. Between the YMCA and Webb Bridge Road on the Greenway, test your mettle on the 1.3-miles Mt. Adams Mountain Biking Trail.
Four Alpharetta parks have tree arboretums that showcase the beauty of native trees. Walking trails at Brook Street Park, Cogburn Road Park, Willis Park and Webb Bridge Park allow you to enjoy such trees as Southern magnolias, water oaks, dogwood, and pecan trees, among others.
