This is definitely a good trail for the jogger or biker or even if you are just looking for a random stroll. It is about a mile and a half long with pavement the whole way. There are a few little ponds that have ducks and there are benches scattered throughout. If you are bringing your dog with you on the trail, make sure you bring plenty of poop bags because there are no pet stations to clean up after your pooch. Birkdale Village is at the end of the trail so you can go catch a movie or something to eat.
Not worth it
I’m glad it’s there it’s a nice link from Merry Oaks to the Country club neighborhood which we love riding bikes in. It’s definitely the smallest greenway I’ve ever seen though:
Nice walk, friendly people, limited parking but spots were open Only went 3 miles
Park in Clanton road transit lot and enjoy an easy, smooth ride to Morehead. Good ride with access to many great restaurants
Great greenway for bikers. I used to ride this trail almost every day. Most people you encounter on the trail are friendly and courteous.
Park at the start of the trail off Pineville-Matthews Road and you'll have an almost 12 mile ride roundtrip. At the end of the trail in one direction there's a Starbucks, so it's also a great place to grab a cup of coffee before you head back.
The trail is pretty open on the 4 mile section and then gets heavily populated with walkers, joggers and families on the 1.75 mile section that heads to Piper Glen. On weekends you'll spend a lot of time navigating around folks.
Well maintained paved and gravel roads and wooden boardwalks. When there's a lot of rain it tends to flood in certain areas. Be very careful on days when it's rained and the boardwalks are wet. They're extremely slick and I've seen riders take really bad falls.
A lot of great wildlife to look at. I've seen snakes, turtles, herons, hawks, possums and loads of deer.
The look of the greenway changes a lot with the seasons so the ride never gets boring.
This is a nice trail that backs up to a neighborhood. It is adphalted and smooth. It can be deceiving in that you see a lot of gravel before seeing the trail.
Nice tree lined trail.
Rode after a week of rain. The trail was wet and muddy. Even with that it was enjoyable. A mixture of crushed stone, asphalt and boardwalks. Saw lots of wildlife including 6 deer.
Well marked trail. No hills and nice view of the trolley blue line. Very nice ride.
Great ride along Sugar Creek. Lots of historical markers explaining construction of the restoration of Sugar Creek through downtown Charlotte.
I live around the corner from the start of the trail and use it often to travel Uptown for work and leisure. I recently attended the Knights game but traveling home on the trail after the game was quite scary. While I have lights on my bike, even those weren't enough to see the trail while riding. I wish there were a few lights after the Wesley Heights neighborhood portion of the trail so that I felt safer riding in the evenings.
