Lovely trail with some interesting points of interest along the way.

Lower McAlpine Creek, McMullen Creek & Four Mile Creek Greenways

Gold Hill Rail-Trail

Carol&Jack Eicher

July, 2017 by caroljeicher

We rode this trail and had a fun experience. It is not the typical rail trail. It is really 2 miles not 1 as stated in the info. I would highly recommend buying the book for $4.00 at the General Store. It has great info. We ran into the author of the book and had her autograph it for us. Gold Hill is a fascinating very old small town with captivating small shops. It is a great place to visit even if not riding/hiking the trail. I would ditto the review above that warns about the trail ending abruptly as it drops off into a ravine. That part of the trail has logs in front of the entrance as it really is not opened yet. However the explorers in us just went around them. Fortunately we were riding slowly and could stop. I assume there was a bridge there. Would be great if they could rebuild one as the trail continues on the other side.

Little Sugar Creek Greenway

Little Sugar Creek Greenway

June, 2017 by dougshaw2012

My wife and I have walked the 7th St. to Freedom Park portion of this Greenway many times (alone or with our dogs) and we love it. The scenery is great. Lots of walkers, bikers and runners on nice days. The Metropolitan is right on the route and has stores and restaurants. Alternates between sunny and shady, plenty of places to rest on benches or on the grass. Public restroom is available between The Metropolitan and Morehead St., and are clean and well maintained. We have also walked the 12th St. to Cordelia Park section of this Greenway and it is a hidden gem. Not nearly as busy as the section I reviewed above, and as such I wouldn't recommend for a woman walking or running solo. Nonetheless, we've never felt at all unsafe and it is a very pretty walk.

Baxter Village Trail

Catawba River

May, 2017 by jeff704

Difficult trail. Many tree roots and water erosion that has created deep channels. Took my kids and too difficult for the 10 year old, so 2 stars. Good for Mt Bikers looking for a technical challenge.

Highland Rail Trail

Highland Trail

March, 2017 by sbkolb

This has the potential to be better but right now, hardly worth it. Took longer to load and unload the bikes than it did to ride the trail and part of it is an overgrown, gravel path. Dead-ends at 321 (a very busy 4-6 lane highway) and no way to get across to Rankin Lake (a very nice park). Maybe, someday, the city will figure a way to cross 321 to get to the park.

Buffalo Creek Preserve Trail

Good trail

February, 2017 by laneyb85

It was a nice mix of hills and flat ground. Not strenuous at all. It is dog friendly but they might not be willing to cross the suspension bridge. It was definitely popular when we went on a Sunday. You can access the creek along the trail of you want to play in the water.

Charlotte Trolley Trail (Charlotte Trolley Rail-with-Trail)

Stay South of Morehead

January, 2017 by jhaake_tl

Only skate South of Morehead St. Anything North of that takes you through downtown, crossing streets and detours through town to link back up to the rest of the trail along the rail line.

Twelve Mile Creek Trail

January, 2017 by jaybird

Loved it! As others have mentioned, this is more of a singletrack mountain biking or hiking trail.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Getting better each time!

December, 2016 by neverest

GREAT improvements to this trail, got to commend Rutherford Outdoor Coalition for their oversight & the Committee that helps guide the management for the future of the trail. New mile & 1/2 mile markers are great for those who want to keep up with their fitness goals. There are 4.5 miles of compacted gravel for hikers, runners, bikers & equestrians to be "in the country" and 3.5 miles (but more in the planning) of asphalt that access the more developed areas. Something for everyone and the BEST part is that its a project that the public can have input into & help make into their own!

Love the diverse topography of this trail! My lab and I love exploring along the creek and in the fall, the color is full of yellows, oranges, browns and some beautiful reds! Also a nice mix up of easy and moderate hiking.
