A natural area between urban communities where wildlife, vegetation, and streams are preserved and enjoyed. Paved and gravel walking trails for bicycling, jogging/running or just a leisurely stroll. River access and fishing piers along the Greenway add to this outdoor experience.

Beginning at Smoot Park (in North Wilkesboro) and following along the Yadkin River (in Wilkesboro), the Greenway continues to W. Kerr Scott Dam & Reservoir on NC 268 West. Total distance is approximately 8.5 miles. The Smoot Park Trail head is part of the Historical Overmountain Victory Trail. Pets on a leash are welcome.
