The Big Creek Greenway in Forsyth County from McFarland Parkway to Bethelview Road is closed due to flooding, the county announced Monday.

The greenway, a linear park, in Forsyth is a 12-foot wide concrete and boardwalk path meandering through the deciduous woods along Big Creek. It offers an ideal setting for walking, jogging, biking and inline skating. 

Phases 1, 2 and 3 of Forsyth's Big Creek Greenway, which span from McFarland Parkway to Bethelview Road, total about 6.8 miles, according to the county's website. Forsyth plans to add Phases 4 and 5, which would result in an approximate 15-mile Big Creek Greenway.

It's unclear when the park will reopen following heavy rain.
