About Nation Ford Greenway
"Connecting the Carolinas"

The Nation Ford Greenway is a connected system of greenspace that will link communities, parks, natural resources,
and historic sites throughout York County.

Imagine spending time throwing a ball with a youngster, riding your bike or enjoying time with your family or friends exploring new trails, greenways or open spaces. A favorite nature walk along the greenway might uncover natural and cultural history or endangered species along the way. Walking, jogging, wildlife observation, educational programs, bicycling, in-line skating or picnicking increase our quality of life and promote a healthy lifestyle. Greenways and trails preserve our favorite places for generations to come.

Local leaders face the challenge of balancing economic growth with protection of our natural resources, especially safe and healthy drinking water. As part of their efforts to achieve this balance, York, Lancaster and Mecklenburg Counties have agreed to a landmark partnership to preserve the Sugar Creek watershed.

The Nation Ford Greenway Steering Committee initially began with representatives from Nation Ford Land Trust, Trust for Public Land, York County Government, Springs Close Foundation, Anne Springs Close Greenway, Crescent Resources, Clear-Springs, and Coulston Enterprises. The group met initially in early 2006, and was interested in coming up with a plan to move the NFG ahead. They looked at some potential trail easements along the proposed route of the NFG, and with the backing of York County elected officials and York County staff, realized that with planning and fundraising, a pilot section of the greenway could be completed and opened to the public in 2007.

The Nation Ford Greenway is only supported by the generosity of our donors and volunteers that help maintain the trail. We can't do this without you. If you've ever come out and enjoyed the trail please donate to our efforts. The Friends of the Nation Ford Greenway will be very important to the success of our trail system. We are looking forward to meeting new members. Please join the Friends of the Nation Ford Greenway and volunteer to help us continue making the Nation Ford Greenway a wonderful trail for our community and visitors.

The Nation Ford Greenway is supported by donations made to the Nation Ford Land Trust (NFLT). The NFLT is a land preservation organization and was founded over 25 years ago to combat the overwhelming growth of Fort Mill, and loss of our greenspaces. All donations and memberships are tax deductible.
