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.

Lower McAlpine Creek, McMullen Creek & Four Mile Creek Greenways

One of the best all-purpose trails/paths.

February, 2018 by modiorne

Walk, stroll, run, bike - mix of wide paved, boardwalk and gravel. Well maintained, in fact several sections where roots had buckled the path now re-paved. Easy for any bike, kids size through road/MTB/recumbent - use a bell/courtesy "passing on your left" because many walkers/runners are chatting or have the ear buds in. Well marked in 1/4 mile increments.
Boardwalks get very slick in rain/ice so careful when running/biking. After strong rains the path can get muddy - and flood in places.
Port-a-johns at both ends. Multiple side access paths all along the greenway. Plenty of benches spaced along.
I run/bike this regularly and rare to not see deer.

Twelve Mile Creek Trail

Great Hike/MTB trail

February, 2018 by modiorne

Wife and I hiked this trail from the NC side, parked at Harvey Clay Nesbit park, and used Carolina Thread Trail "clues" to link to this trail. We did hike the full trail to Walnut Creek side - as others have mentioned there are some rough/rugged spots so a true MTB is recommended, but hiking in sturdy shoes gets the job done too.
Beautiful trail overall.

Torrence Creek Greenway

Nice ride!

Great Saturday ride! Path is shady and wide.. saw lots of dogs 🐾

Buffalo Creek Preserve Trail

Only a one way trip

September, 2017 by doylegrp

Enjoyed the walk, but this trail does not loop. When you get to the end there's a sign that says this is the end of the trail(it meets a stone road, so you think you can loop), but, you must turn around. Half of the trail has been clear cut of trees with no shade; weeds too high to see much in that area. You could easily loop back out around Mt. Pleasant rd if biking. Definately an easy mountain bike trail.

Kings Mountain Gateway Trail

Gateway Trail

September, 2017 by spurrier_tl

The short loop trails are a great way to unwind. Either the Butterfly Garden or at the top of Cardio Hill. Also offers workout stations which I haven't seen in sometime. Will maintained and great facilities at the trail head. Great view of Crowders and Kings Mountain from the top of Cardio Hill.

Highland Rail Trail

Very Short Walk

September, 2017 by rayinnh

Nice area but very short. There is an area where you can walk down from the trail to the water but it's quite steep.

Lower McAlpine Creek, McMullen Creek & Four Mile Creek Greenways

Lower McAlpine Creek

September, 2017 by rayinnh

Very nice trail but you must be careful if you are a walker or hiker. Some people riding bikes need to slow down coming around corners and its very easy to have an accident. Nice long walk under cover with some spots of heated sun.

Little Sugar Creek Greenway

Little Sugar Creek Greenway

September, 2017 by rayinnh

Nice walk following Little Sugar Creek into the city and out. The trail is concert and it does cross over several roads. The walk or bike is very level and very nice to see some wild life such as a bonny have a pleasant time eating some grass.

Buffalo Creek Preserve Trail

Great Hiking and Biking

September, 2017 by rayinnh

This trail is very mixed. There a level portions of the trails and then there are hilly portions. There is a stretch that has no cover and during the middle of summer, quite hot, so bring a bottle of water. Lots of interesting things to see and you do walk across a rope supported bridge which does bonce as you walk and an excellent view of the river.

Torrence Creek Greenway

Nice Walk

September, 2017 by rayinnh

The walk is pleasant and for much of the paths pretty level. Great for biking and walking. Travels outside the close proximity to homes which makes it ideal to get out and take advantage of the paths.
