This is our longest greenway, stretching more than 7 miles. It is used by joggers, walkers, bicyclists, rollerbladers, baby strollers, and skateboarders. The western end is a paved trail through many university area neighborhoods. In the middle is a gravel trail through University Research Park. The eastern end is a paved trail passing through mature floodplain forest, under I-85 and Highway 29, and on to the Kirk Farm soccer fields near UNC-Charlotte.
This easy, level Greenway is mostly paved asphalt ideal for anything from skateboarding to jogging.
Pets are permissible, though they must be leashed at all times. Most trailheads have garbage cans, as well as doggie bags for picking up after your pet.
There are no public restroom facilities along this greenway.
Each hiker is responsible for their own snacks and water.
UPDATE TO MEETING PLACE:
We'll meet at Kirk Farm Fields parking lot near UNCC in time to start our walking at 9am. We'll head west and cover a total 2.5-3 hours of moderate-paced walking. For those who would like to do lunch afterwards, we will be going to Don Pedro's for a pre-Cinco de Mayo celebration! :)
