There is a small paved parking area at the trail head, and a facility building with restrooms and a picnic shelter. There is a water fountain and bike rack as well. Accessibility: Users have reported that the first 0.25 miles of the loop is paved and then the surface turns to dirt (rocky, muddy, or uneven in places).

There are some moderately steep sections with an estimated grade up to 8% where wheelchair/mobility equipment or stroller users may need assistance.

Great hike. Follow the map on this app and you won’t have any issues. It was a bit muddy due to all the rain recently.

I really enjoyed my first visit to this nature preserve. Plenty of little trails off the main loop to get in extra steps. I felt safe on the trail and will visit again soon.

Really nice flat trail. Took us about 45 minutes to complete. Not too crowded or muddy and was very dog friendly. Definitely will be going back!

Nice quiet trail in the winter. Very muddy (as expected after rains), but still fun to walk through. Beautiful greenery.

Another hidden gem in urban Charlotte. I started at the Nature Preserve entrance on Norland Avenue (across from Eastway Middle School). Starting on the Norland Loop trail I ventured throughout the Tuliptree, Creek Crossing and Evergreen Trail ending at Sheffield Park. Trails loop around the nature preserve and cross at several points. There were a few muddy spots on the trail due to rain the previous day. No lake views other than the wetland bridge connecting Tarrington Avenue to Sheffield Park. I doubled back a few times to explore so my trek is not a straight route. Cozy park in East Charlotte with all the amenities for family fun and exploration. Would definitely return

HikingGreat!

We went on a warm afternoon in December. For the most part, there were very few people which was nice and the weather was perfect. We loved walking across the wooden planks over the streams. The incline was very mild. We opted not to see the cemetery halfway through the loop. This took only 45 minutes and was overall very pleasant.
