Fan Branch Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This greenway delivers a little bit of everything, including three creeks to visit. Start the trek at Southern Community Park, where you walk through a wooded preserve before leaving the park near Scroggs Elementary School.

Come near Fan Branch as the trail continues north through Southern Village, where it uses the sidewalk along a street for a short period. The trail dips to cross Fan Branch in a widened swath of greenspace then crosses Fan Branch’s mother stream— Wilson Creek—twice. Tunnel under Culbreth Road and enter more parkland to meet Morgan Creek and the Morgan Creek Trail."
