A multi-use trail for pedestrians, bicyclists, dog-walkers, families,
runners and wheelchair users
A multi-use trail connecting all communities along the North Fork Peachtree Creek.
Our mission is to promote the Peachtree Creek Greenway in Atlanta, Brookhaven, Chamblee, Unincorporated DeKalb, and Doraville.
The North Fork Peachtree Creek
The Peachtree Creek Greenway will run along the bank of North Fork Peachtree Creek in the northeast Atlanta metropolitan area. Although one cannot see it easily, this creek follows I-85 from Georgia 400 up to and beyond I-285.
North Fork Peachtree Creek, together with South Fork Peachtree Creek, join to become the Peachtree Creek which flows into the Chattahoochee River. The North Fork begins at the edge of Gwinnett County and flows 13.5 miles southwest through DeKalb County, almost perfectly parallel to Interstate 85. The South Fork begins in Tucker and flows 15.4 miles south through Clarkston and then west through Emory University.
The confluence of the two branches of Peachtree Creek occurs where Interstate 85 and Georgia 400 meet, becoming the Peachtree Creek, which flows for 7.5 miles through Atlanta just south of Buckhead, almost due west into the Chattahoochee River.
The Future of the North Fork Peachtree Creek
Today, both the North and South Fork watersheds are highly developed with much of the land being impermeable, and storm water becoming constricted.Through public visibility and vigilance of the North Fork Peachtree Creek, we also hope to transform its present state of neglect into a healthy ecosystem more able to manage storm water, mitigate floods, as well as provide shelter to wildlife and native plants.
