The new boardwalk at the entrance of Waters Edge at the top of Riverwatch Parkway replaces the user-created footpath that led a few hundred feet to the concrete bulkhead structure Hawks Gulley.
From there the path joins the Savannah River Greenway and includes two bridges spanning the trailraces of Sibley and King mills.
The bridge over King Mill trailrace is a cable-stayed bridge, which is almost a miniature suspension bridge.
Since 2001, the Land Trust has been hard at work preserving ribbons of green throughout urban Augusta and its suburbs. Thousands of acres of these urban wild places — cypress forests, lush wetlands, and verdant fields — have now been permanently protected.
And piece by piece, they are being linked together like pearls on a necklace into a massive network of public bike and pedestrian trails. The goal of this Savannah River Greenway, is to connect Aiken, Columbia, and Richmond Counties with over 150 miles of pathways, both as a means of alternative transportation between home, work, school, and leisure, and for the benefit of public health and outdoor recreation.Central Savannah Land Trust
