The vast majority of land throughout Phases 1 and 2 has been protected through conservation easements by the Katawba Valley Land Trust.
GREEN: The route of Phase 1's hard-surface trail (both asphalt and boardwalk) is in Green. This route will be approximately 2 miles in length and will have a variety of access points throughout the City of Lancaster.
TAN: Both Phase 1 and Phase 2's routes will include natural paths. On the other handWhile natural paths cost less, they require additional maintenance due to varying weather conditions. On the other hand, hard-surface trails are more accessible for the general public, require less maintenance and can withstand frequent use, they are also more expensive.
BLUE: The proposed conceptual design of Phase 2 of the Greenway is in Blue. As envisioned, Phase 2 will continue west of Gillsbrook Road towards MUSC Health Lancaster Medical Center and will fork near Plantation Road. The southern path will connect at West Meeting Street across from the Springdale Recreation Center's soccer fields and disc golf course. The northern path will continue past Plantation Road, wind along Cane Creek, and will end at Somerset Drive, near Adornus Cabinetry.
