Please join us in supporting Georgia Hi-Lo Trail!
- We love to bike trails, pathways, greenways, & boardwalks to discover new places with experiences for the traveler. Safe from auto traffic, we enjoy the journey on happy trails and think your family will too, not to mention the charming towns waiting to greet us!
- We're fundraising to help build the Georgia Hi-Lo Trail, which is a proposed 250-mile multi-use trail from Athens to Savannah which includes the Firefly Trail (from Athens to Union Point) which is underway and making great progress changing the quality of life in those towns. The GHLT will continue where the trail ends in Union Point on to Savannah.
- The vision of the trail is to build America's longest paved multi-use trail to empower rural communities and a bonus it to offer fiber internet along the trail corridor.
- Just imagine!
My Personal AthSav Experience
ATH-SAV ride is this Fri-Sat virtual, or in person (for a small group of 50)
ATH-SAV ride will feature the Firefly Trail starting in Athens and working its way to Union Point which is now on the ground in several segments, (check out their progress on their facebook page) and continue on towards Savannah as a fundraiser for the Georgia Hi-Lo Trail. Keeping with tradition of this ride, its a century both days so bring your legs of steel!
And join the event virtually if you arent riding in person this year. Jeff and I are doing 100 virtual miles.

Hurray for trail connectivity expanding the network in Georgia!
Georgia Hi-Lo Trail Vision:
Connect two trail projects to form a 250-mile paved, road-separated path through small Georgia towns from Athens to Savannah.
1) Firefly Trail - begins in Athens and will end in Union Point, a distance of 39 miles when completed. Firefly Trail, Inc. began their work in 2007 and have been true "trail blazers" across small communities in Georgia.
2) Georgia Hi-Lo Trail - will connect to the Firefly Trail in Union Point and continue on to Savannah a 211-mile stretch through rural Georgia.
Hurray for trail connectivity!

Biking trails every chance we get
We in fact are lifelong bike and trail advocates. For years we advocated for bike safety on the roadways, sharing the road, bike lanes, bike boulevards, and that grew into separated paths and greenways. Now we prefer paths and trails all the time. Every vacation is spent touring some new community via trail, greenway, boardwalk, path or water trail.
Trails are incremental and built in several stages but they all start with a trail champion, a plan, and building a model mile to show folks what's in store...after that is usually accelerates the progress because once a community gets a trail, every neighboring community wants one too.
Jump in, we think you'll love the lifestyle, as will your entire family, and it can last you a lifetime.
