So, while visiting the Apple Festival over the weekend, did you go walk along the newest section of The Yadkin River Greenway? Last week a special opening ceremony was held at Smoot Park in North Wilkesboro to officially open the latest path of the walking trail. This 1.2 mile section of the Greenway which goes from Smoot Park to Memorial Park is the latest edition in Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail, which establishes and recognizes the trek of Patriot militia to the Revolutionary War Battle of Kings Mountain back in 1780. The Yadkin River Greenway was created through the cooperative efforts of citizen volunteers, landowners, and governments of Wilkes County, North Wilkesboro, Wilkesboro, and State of North Carolina. The project began in 1994 and the first section was opened in May 2002.
