Short Greenway in Lilburn, Georgia near Athens to Atlanta Course Railway Crossing

I saw an article in the right sidebar of Roadskater.net mentioning a greenway in Lilburn, GA... http://www.gwinnettdailypost.com/main.asp?SectionID=6&SubSectionID=6&Art... I did a search and found a mapmyride/mapmyrun entry... http://www.mapmyrun.com/run/united-states/ga/lilburn/878548689412 ...the author mentioned it follows the creek more than the railway. That's good, I thought, because I thought I knew which railway this was...the one near US29. I checked it out and yes, it goes under Sugarloaf Parkway near US29, and continues along through Lilburn and crosses the Athens to Atlanta A2A Roadskate course at Harmony Grove. Here's another link on the trail... http://www.cityoflilburn.com/index.asp?Type=B_BASIC&SEC={60A7B88E-1B68-4EB8-9B59-85BD180A6FE1}&DE={BA838BAF-C3CC-4F2B-8E3A-4178E38B63BC} "The City of Lilburn is currently in the planning stages of the Camp Creek Greenway Trail between Rockbridge Road and Killian Hill Road." Rockbridge is the climb up bend left then bend right down into the stoplight, cross over to a 45-degree left. We stopped there this time, saw some huge sandcastle mosque looking building, ate a banana, and continued across US29. After a downhill and uphill past a church, you cross over to a view of the railroad tracks at the bottom of a hill. This is a live railway indeed and not an abandoned railway by any means! Still, it's good that there's a trail going in there, and maybe they'll be able to extend it along the right of way or nearby for many miles. That'd be sweet indeed (just stay off the rails, kiddies). Next time I'm there I might check it out unless eebee gets there first!
