Briar Creek Greenway

tiny trail

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:

Lower McAlpine Creek, McMullen Creek & Four Mile Creek Greenways

Favorite Greenway in Charlotte

July, 2018 by tjonesy

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.

Twelve Mile Creek Trail

Nice and Shaded

July, 2018 by kinjamyhaz

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.

Irwin Creek and Stewart Creek Greenways

Too dark to use at night

April, 2018 by megan.fox.308

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.

Lower McAlpine Creek, McMullen Creek & Four Mile Creek Greenways

A good 8 miles

April, 2018 by timmy0728

Trail is mostly pavement, boardwalk (my favorite parts) and gravel that make up the 4 miles of rolling small hills. Have run the trail several times while in the area. Get to hear and see some nature during your run, walk or ride.
If in the area and want to get some miles in, this is a nice safe place.
