Welcome to the East Coast Greenway in Georgia

The route through Georgia will use the Coastal Georgia Greenway. The route is approximately 165 miles, connecting South Carolina to Florida through Georgia’s six coastal counties. The network links towns, attractions, recreational sites, historic and cultural sites, waterways, and natural habitats of the coast.

The route will follow various north-south routes, including the U.S. Highway 17 corridor, abandoned rail corridors, and historic canal corridors, from which visitors can sample coastal imagery.

Most of the Georgia route is still on road, but the ECGA and volunteers throughout Georgia are working diligently to make this trail a reality.

Current Projects

Today, 6 percent of the Georgia route is off-road and 14 percent is under development while 41 miles of gap exists. The Coastal Georgia Greenway, serving as the Georgia Committee for the East Coast Greenway, is working hard at developing partnerships throughout the state to move the trail forward. Current projects include:

  • Working to secure $1 million in dedicated state funding for Greenway design, construction and maintenance
  • Updating local, regional, and state plans to include strategic Greenway segments
  • Raising private investment for fast-tracked Greenway construction
  • Including Greenway projects in county sales tax ballot initiatives
  • Coordinating River Relay events in Savannah, Hinesville, and Brunswick
