McDowell Creek Greenway Description

About 12 miles north of Charlotte, the McDowell Creek Greenway links the communities of Huntersville and Cornelius. The paved, mile-and-a-half route is part of the larger Carolina Thread Trail, a regional network that will connect 15 counties across two states.

At the southern end of the greenway is the Birkdale Village Shopping Center, a great place to shop or grab a bite to eat. As the trail makes its way north, its busy urban surroundings give way to lake views, meadows, and trees.

 

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the south end of the trail in the Birkdale Village Shopping Center off Sam Furr Road. The address for the trailhead is: 16830 Cranlyn Road.

McDowell Creek Greenway Reviews

Pleasant walk

This is definitely a good trail for the jogger or biker or even if you are just looking for a random stroll. It is about a mile and a half long with pavement the whole way. There are a few little ponds that have ducks and there are benches scattered throughout. If you are bringing your dog with you on the trail, make sure you bring plenty of poop bags because there are no pet stations to clean up after your pooch. Birkdale Village is at the end of the trail so you can go catch a movie or something to eat.
