Catawba River Greenway

In-line skating the trail

September, 2020 by rmaron

I am travelling cross-country and stopping each day to skate.

This trail has occasional root cracks, but I don't recall ever skating on smoother pavement. A GREAT skating venue.

I found dry leaves on the trail in many places, but skated through them without any problem.

Beware the wet spots on the trail - they are SLIPPERY!

Catawba Meadows Park is about mid-point and is a good parking area.

Salem Lake Trail

Enjoyable ride around Salem Lake a little elevation change but nothing to strenuous.

Salem Lake Trail

Great trail

September, 2020 by ana.ramirez.gaspar

I ran and walked this trail twice, and it definitely packs in a good workout. I love that it’s mostly (90%) shades so it makes for a good workout during hot summer days. I also like that there’s a water fountain at the beginning of the trail (near the parking lot by the playground) and at the halfway mark.

Little Sugar Creek Greenway

nice ride

August, 2020 by nja652

A nice ride through the city connecting several parks. Fairly flat with several turns and some great scenery. Only complaint is the northern part of the trail has a lot of street crossings and can be a little confusing to navigate back on the trail. Will definitely ride again though.

Salem Creek Greenway

Nice paved trail

August, 2020 by cawattleworth

Enjoyable 5 mile mostly flat trail along the creek that connects to the 7 mile Salem Lake unpaved (packed dirt/crushed gravel) trail around the lake. There are a couple of fairly steep, but short hills. Greenway trail is probably 60% shaded. Two spots not far from the Salem Lake end the trail goes through the creek, which isn’t a problem for bikers at normal water levels other than possible wet feet. A bridge would be nice. My biggest criticism, however, is the South Main street area. I guess the road bridge was too low to permit the trail to go under, so you wind up, around, over and around again to get back on the trail on other side of S Main. Biggest issue is inadequate signage in the area as there are other paved trails and sidewalks In the area that can cause confusion.

Catawba River Greenway

Nice ride

July, 2020 by marjiew

Great trail for my first ride in two years. Mostly flat, a few slight inclines. Shade available. Only trouble was with one family group with an unleashed dog and another woman on the wrong side of the trail with a dog who wouldn’t move to the right. Please people, follow the rules and keep everyone safe. I look forward to riding there again.

Catawba River Greenway

Lovely Trail

July, 2020 by rhondalmckenna

This is a lovely trail. It goes through some beautiful parks. Good facilities. The trail is mostly shaded, flat and runs along the river. Will definitely be going back.

Bakers Creek Greenway

not really a trail

June, 2020 by jodi7mercedes

This is not really a trail it’s more of a walk through a neighborhood you legit walk through streets at some point to make it all the way around

Little Sugar Creek Greenway

Amazing Trail Spanning the Length of South Charlotte

May, 2020 by rgoldberg80

A great trail connecting some of the Southern-most parts of the city all the way up to North of Uptown - with just a few missing links that are currently in progress. When fully completely this will be an even bigger asset to every person in CLT. So many beautiful spots along the way, especially near Park Road Park and just North or Park Road Shopping Center.

Avon and Catawba Creeks Greenway

Nice easy trail

May, 2020 by petra.willig

This trail is nice and flat and mostly shady. it has easy access if you park at park off 700 E Garrison- the armory parking lot features a steep hill we didn’t want to navigate with strollers.
