Gwinnett Trails is an award-winning system with over 145 miles of multi-use paths. The Gwinnett Trails program consists of implementing the Countywide Trails Master Plan, a vision to more than triple the existing system through capital investments in new trail facilities, a cohesive branding and identification system of signage, robust community outreach to bring awareness of the system, and engagement with community partners. These extensive efforts are in coordination with the Gwinnett County Departments of Community Services, Transportation, Water Resources, Support Services, and Communications, as well as in collaboration with all 16 Gwinnett Cities and six Community Improvement Districts.
The Gwinnett Standard is an expectation of excellence in service, stewardship, and integrity in everything we do, and Gwinnett Trails upholds this standard for our trail network.
Gwinnett's trails promote a healthy and active lifestyle, foster a sense of community, and preserve the natural environment. They provide opportunities for individuals and families to engage in physical activity, connect with nature, and enjoy the beauty of Gwinnett County. They also encompass a diverse range of trails that cater to different preferences and skill levels. These trails wind through picturesque landscapes providing an immersive experience in nature. Some trails are paved, making them suitable for strollers, wheelchairs, and bicycles, while others are more rugged and offer a more challenging hiking or mountain biking experience.
Whether for exercise, relaxation, or exploration, Gwinnett Trails offers something for everyone!

For your safety, we've installed 911 emergency help locator signs on several Gwinnett Trails. In an emergency on a trail with a help locator system, call or text 911 and provide the closest help locator number to assist emergency personnel in finding your location. Do not move from the help locator until found or directed to do so from emergency personnel.

Gwinnett Trails and Live Healthy Gwinnett have partnered with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s Strong4Life Raising Resilience program to install interactive signage along four Gwinnett Trails in the following parks: Lenora, (Snellville), Little Mulberry (Dacula), Mountain Park (Lilburn), and Shorty Howell (Duluth). This partnership encourages and inspires children to build Resilience, manage stress, and cope with challenges. Check out the signs the next time you visit one of these parks—and we hope to expand this program to other Gwinnett Trails!
This partnership will be featured in an American Trails webinar: Creative Trails Programming Through Public-Private Partnerships.
