Green Mill Run Greenway

Great Family trail

April, 2024 by wxn4rxwz9b

Park in lot down towards the back ball fields at Elm Street park to get in. Short dirt path gets you directly on. Plus there’s public restrooms at that lot. Well paved. Clearly marked. Great path culture among walkers and bikers. Only a few stops for streets that are very pedestrian/biker friendly with the flashing blinkers. Traffic openly stopped both times. Shade trees also no the whole way. Great river side breeze from the tar river. There’s a leash free dog park near the end of the park that we found a pavilion to enjoy snacks we packed. Great playground at elm street to use as children’s incentive to play at after biking. Lol. Ours four year old loved it. The path has pleasant hills (for enc) and gentle curves to add variety . Good riding :)

Crabtree Creek Greenway

A bit disappointing

April, 2024 by rmillanct

What was not expected was the trail was closed on two ends, so I can’t put in a totally fair review, but I was not impressed. The trail breaks up a lot, connects via the road, runs through a lot of suburban areas that are somewhat scenic. There are some cool bridges, but can’t really say I saw much more to write about. I am giving this 3 stars based on the fact I could not see the entire trail.

Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

bridge is out

April, 2024 by brian.laney8

The bridge crossing Lake Brandt 1/4 mile south of Strawberry Rd is blocked off. The detour is Battleground Rd to Bur-Mil park.

Thermal Belt Rail Trail

Thanks for such a nice way to see NC

April, 2024 by vc2019

Enjoyed the entire trail on Aprils Fool Day. It is a nice wide trail from beginning to end. There are some road crossings but all are well marked. We saw walkers and cyclist on this overcast spring day. Impressive maps at the parking lots.

Surprised that only pedestrians have access to trail at this time.

Thermal Belt Rail Trail

great ride

March, 2024 by dongrant18

Wide, long ascents and descents and varied scenery. We wisded that we had stopped at Fly Boy Pizza and Fly Girl Brewing at Mile 3.5. Super friendly bike store called Grumpy’s around mile 6 across the street from the trail.

Thermal Belt Rail Trail

Nice paved trail

March, 2024 by nharman84

You can do just about anything on this trail and it’s a nice length. Love this trail for walking and biking.

Shelby Rail-Trail

Nice trail love the bridge.

March, 2024 by nharman84

My only complaint is the bridge has been locked for months with what seems like no real reason at this point.

Little Sugar Creek Greenway

March, 2024 by m.september1971

The new extension on the south end of Charlotte is very enjoyable to ride

Oklawaha Greenway

Emerald Path

Disappointing

March, 2024 by steve mcc

The bike path is really a sidewalk down the peninsula. As you ride there are rows of houses to the left obscuring any water view and 3 rows of houses to the right obscuring any ocean view. Every 50 to 100 feet there is a crossroad with a bike stop sign so don’t expect to get any long pedaling in. If you like stop and wait and go crossroads this is for you! The homes you see are typical beach houses, all new builds, nothing spectacular. The business sections look a little run down. It is hardly worth taking the bikes off the car let alone driving all the way there. If you don’t mind leaving your bike and walking thru a beach access, the ocean view is pretty. But this trail can be scratched from your list. Sorry. We wanted to like it.

Little Sugar Creek Greenway

trail information not current.

March, 2024 by raven3

Going south, the map stops at Rt 485, however the trail does continues south into Pineville and beyond. There are areas further north that utilize city streets in upscale neighborhoods due to construction as part of hospital construction project. The trail is terrific just need to update the map.
