The Indian Creek Greenway, currently in two segments, runs along Huntsville's western border with the city of Madison. Future plans call for connecting the two segments and extending the trail north to Old Monrovia Road for a total of 6 miles.
The trail's northern segment begins at Providence Elementary and Middle School (10 Chalkstone Street) and travels south nearly a mile to US Highway 72. The pathway runs through a heavily wooded area with spurs that lead out to residential areas, restaurants and shops in the Providence community.
The longer segment meanders along the creek for just shy of 3 miles through woods and farmland. It begins in Creekwood Park and travels south to Old Madison Pike. The park offers a large playground, an 18-hole disc golf course, covered picnic tables and a fenced-in dog park.
Parking and Trail Access
For the northern segment, parking can be found within the Providence community.
For the southern segment, a paved lot is available at the trailhead in Creekwood Park (360 Harvestwood Court) and an unpaved parking area can be found at the trailhead on Old Madison Pike (a quarter mile east of Slaughter Road).
