Study Overview

In 2023, the City received a Feasibility Study Grant from NCDOT’s Integrated Mobility Division to investigate options to link the Ecusta Trail near downtown Hendersonville with the Oklawaha Greenway in Jackson Park and the 7th Avenue Historic District. This project is called Above the Mud in reference to its proximity to Mud Creek. The City of Hendersonville and Henderson County have made great strides in building a connected greenway network that includes the Ecusta Trail, the Oklawaha Greenway, and the Clear Creek Greenway. While working to build longer segments of the trail and greenway network, the City of Hendersonville is also interested in filling smaller trail and greenway gaps that connect these larger trails.

Since receiving the grant, the City has been working to identify a route that is comfortable for people who walk and bike, has community support, and can be funded and constructed. The team working on the project has identified two alternatives that meet the goals of the project. The purpose of this survey is to learn how community members would use this future greenway.
