This 1.5-mile greenway is comprised of sidewalk and paved trail and is suitable for walking and running.

The Hickory Greenway connects multiple parks, including the Glenn Hilton Civic Park a park complete with playgrounds, a memorial garden, many picnic areas, and other nice amenities.
*Special Note to Bikers: This greenway has several areas which are suitable for biking. Bikers can bike along the road in the residential area. However, bikers should beware that there is a large set of steps at the start of the greenway portion that immediately follows the residential area. From that location, the paved greenway stretches briefly until reaching a boardwalk where biking is not permitted.
