As others have mentioned, this is not a typical woodland trail. However, it is a very nice walking path with good shade and pleasant scenery. I appreciate the variety of this path and enjoy it more than straight trails such as Mary Black.
We found the Little Sugar Creek Greenway to be a smooth, well-maintained paved pathway connecting numerous parks. We had a great experience on this trail! There is something for everyone; the northern urban section is fun and vibrant with shops and restaurants nearby, while the southern portion offers a tranquil wooded route, where we saw six deer!
The boardwalks are very slippery for cyclists. I lost control of my bike in 2022 and while I was down, another cyclist did the same thing and nearly landed on top of me. A torn rotator cuff, surgery, and 7 months of rehab later, I will not be cycling on this greenway again. I do love the shade in the summer though!
Well maintained and is used a lot. Never find yourself alone on this trail.
I jog this trail, and is part paved and part boardwalk. One positive is the tree cover which provides shade even in afternoon hours. The boardwalk areas need to be maintained better as the boards need to be replaced more frequently as the boards get chewed up and sometimes I have to watch my step. They do replace the worst ones, but not frequently enough. Does get flooded and muddy after a heavy rain to the point it can be unusable. The Rea Road ending point has fountains and a bathroom.
I am a jogger, I run this trail often in the South Charlotte area. The portion from Marsh Park to Tyvola is well paved, in good condition, and is maintained well. Water fountains are well placed. After a rain, it doesn't get muddy or very wet like Four Mile Creek. People very friendly on the trail. Can get crowded on Saturday mornings with all the running clubs, races, etc. Only issue is the speeding bikers, sometimes they call out, sometimes they don't.
My wife and I ( we are in our 60's) rode our ebikes and it was a great workout. I don't think we would have made it on our mountain bikes, but we saw a guy on a regular bike. Make your way to the gravel and it's about 5 miles out and 5 miles back. It is very similar to a rail trail, but it does have some hills. Well maintained and not crowded on the gravel trail. We'll be back.
The park is just off Church St, with clean restrooms and an enclosed play area for kids. The trail extends past the park under the overpass and around an open space for a nice little walk.
Beautiful addition! Great terrain. Distance is so great! Loved how it connected to other trails and you can just keep going. We went out 3 miles before turning around. Cant say enough good things.
We started at Cornelia Park and went all the way to Polk Historical site and many miles beyond that. The trail keeps going! We did 36.4 miles. Going through town was a bit confusing, signage is small and lacking in many places. Awesome smooth path, a great mix of buildings, parks and nature!
I have not written a mountain bike in well over 20 years, and I wanted to start riding again because it’s less traumatic on my knees. Came out to give this trail a check today, and I have to say it is fantastic! A few Hills that’ll make you work a little bit, but a lot of it is flat with excellent scenery, all in all a very nice ride!!
Very hard to find! This is a HIKING trail. Unless your a VERY experienced mountain biker just hike!!!!
