The trail network at Reedy Creek Park serves two functions. Trail on the north side link the park’s various amenities: dog park with ball fields with picnic facilities with playgrounds and camping. Trail on the park’s south side, emanating from the nature center, explores the more pristine parts of the park. On the 4.5-mile circuit we'll be doing, we'll start on the Umbrella Trail and quickly pick up the Big Oak Trail (which might have also been named Big Rock Trail) and quickly escape into maturing Piedmont forest. A good destination is the Robinson Rockhouse Ruins, a decaying example of what constituted elite living in Charlotte in the late 1700s. A return on the Sierra Loop, Sassafras and Dragonfly trails offers more rolling Piedmont exploring.
