As its name suggests, this multiuse path travels along the South Prong of the Rocky River in Davidson, Mecklenburg County. There are two complete off-street segments, totaling 1.7 miles, that are linked by a series of sidewalks, bike lanes and shared streets. The shorter segment runs just 0.4 miles and is found on South Street, just south of Davidson Elementary and McEver Baseball Fields. A grassy verge and sometimes-thick vegetation line both sides of the trail, making it feel like a natural escape. Wildlife like deer and frogs as well a multitude of bird species may be spotted while on the trail. Residents of neighboring Cornelius can use the Antiquity Greenway to access the trail at South Street. The longer off-street segment begins at Hudson Place and roughly parallels the river's course up to Davidson-Concord Road. It's just as immersive, and the views of homes don't take away from the feeling of being lost in nature. That segment connects to Cornelius via Plum Creek Greenway. The trail is wide and flat, making for an easy walk, run or ride.
Park at the South Street trailhead (859 South St, Davidson). On the other end of the trail, visitors can park at River Run Athletic Park (13007 Robert Walker Dr, Davidson) and take the sidepath on Robert Walker Drive to the spine of the trail.
