Northwest Greenway
Northwest Greenway winds along a leg of
Third Creek through the woods.

Directions: I-75 North to Merchant Road Exit. Left off exit, approximately two miles to intersection of Merchant Road and Pleasant Ridge Road. Park is on the south side of this intersection.

The Northwest Greenway begins on Northwest Middle School property and makes a series of loop trails around the edges of open space. The greenway connects south along Third Creek from Northwest Middle School and Northwest Park to Victor Ashe Greenway, which circumvents the soccer field. Northwest Greenway also connects to Pleasant Ridge Greenway at Northwest Middle School's entrance on Pleasant Ridge Rd.

This greenway affords beautiful views of the creeks, springs, and farms in the area with certain sections featuring creek on both sides of the greenway.
