On the southern outskirts of Charlotte, a series of connected greeways along creeks form a horseshoe-shaped path of nearly 6 miles. The pathway is primarily paved with wooden boardwalks over creeks and wetlands; a section of the McMullen Creek Greenway (the trail's northwestern end) is gravel.
Along the way, watch the treetops for great blue herons, warblers, and woodpeckers. Trailside signs point out wildlife and plants that have made the well-shaded waterways their home. Although the trail feels quiet and peaceful, it is easily accessible from the surrounding neighborhoods.
The two main parking areas for the trail are 11823 Johnston Road and Vista Grande Court off of Carmel Road. Restrooms are also available at the Johnston Road trailhead.
