on Umbrella Tree Trail

trail running
15 days ago

Clean, safe, and one mile laps! Great tree roots, hills and stairs for beginning trail runner. Close enough to parking lot I leave my water bottle in my car.

Walked this with my son and a group of Trail Life USA guys. Had a great walk. Water didn’t seem as clean as it should have been. The water in the slow moving creek/branch was foamy. Not sure if foamy is a sign of pollution or not but was foamy none the less. Other than the water, the walk was great.

Great mix of natural surroundings, wonderful little nature center, and hikes for most skill levels.

If you live in Charlotte are are seeking a little solitude that is convenient, this is a quick escape especially if you go during the week. Park gets really crowded at times but overall a great place for a quick and easy hike through the woods. I go here alone but hiking is easy for kids as well.

Finally found a trail in the Charlotte area that felt like a nice woods hike. I will definitely be back often.

Great Trails

amazing trails. Great for families and self relaxation

nice 1mile loop in an urban city, feels like the forest.

Urban Park. Stroll in the woods. Adjacent is a disc golf course.

Very easy which is why I can’t bring myself to call what we did hiking. Not much to see along the way. Very poorly marked. Great for beginners, small kids but don’t expect to be wowed.

We got a trail map in the nature center... It is also available online. The person working the desk helped us decide how to combine the trails into a 3 to 4 mile hike. We set up our hammocks by the pond... Great day!

Good, wide trails with plenty of scenery. With the kid center close by there is something for everyone.

Visited for the first time today and I have nothing negative to say! There's a basketball and volleyball court, a baseball and soccer field, a dog park, playgrounds, picnic areas, and of course many different hiking trails. I hiked a few miles today and it was very pleasant. Definitely will be visiting again soon.

Easy Loop at Reedy Creek Nature Preserve. Trail is well maintained and crosses other trails.

Be sure to get a map of all the trails and take some of the rarely used trails for a real wilderness feel.

not clearly marked trail.

A great moderate hike, such a pretty park right in the city!!!

Nice easy beginner trail. Not sure why it is rated moderate? Cool get away in a big city.

Nice trail, but definitely need to be marked better. No trail maps provided either

Great gem close to the city

Walked this trail and took fork to Robison Rock House Ruins. Great hike, but watch for snakes. Was sitting on a rock, thought I had looked and a copperhead was nearby. According to nature center the ruins are a hot spot for them, which makes total sense with the number of hidey holes! Gorgeous views and is a nice place to hike in summer, since the canopy keeps the trail cooler than in sunshine.

Really easy trail. There aren't much incline so if you want just a long trail without having to go up high, this trail is for you. There's also a nice area to fish if you are into that.

Fun easy hike

It was nice! A lot of trails to pick from and a lot of activities to pick from if you don't like hiking. Only problem is trail were not well marked.

The system of trails at Reedy Creek allows one to hike many more miles than described above. I hiked 5 miles on a moderate trail. This parks has lots to offer.

Great walk/hike. The hardest trails are not that difficult with small changes in elevation. There's multiple trails here that one can do. Trails are not real busy.
