Hike Distance?


From the parking lot of the Alpharetta Greenway/Big Creek Trail at the YMCA, take the trail heading towards the mall (south). Follow the trail over a bridge or two until you come to a cement trail veering off the main trail to the right. Take this side trail. You will come to a sweeping right hand curve with a tree on each side. Look for an expansion joint in the sidewalk that points to these trees. Count 28 steps to another crack in the sidewalk. Look up and you should be able to see an office building (summer view may be obscured by leaves on the trees), turn left. Count 12 to 13 steps forward and turn left. Take 12 steps forward and turn left again. "Why Knot" should be in front of you. Though this is sidewalk the entire route, it is approx. 4 miles roundtrip.
