Great walking trail, almost no elevation, 12.3 miles out and back if you add Campbell, 24k steps, about 4 hours. Cons: lack of restrooms, too many bikers on a trail.

Parking at Sardis Rd crossing McAlpine Creek. Nice easy trail along the creek, paved or hard pack gravel. Look for ruins of the Lucas Grist Mill along Campbell Creek after crossing Margaret Wallace Rd. Stop at McAlpine Greenway Park to explore the nature trails beyond the pond. (Note: watch signs if biking. Some trails are closed to bikes).

Definitely more for a family trail or biking trail. We did 9.3 miles today, all of McAlpine and some of Campbell. It was not very shaded. The Lake was beautiful, the rest was just paved trail in between some trees. FYI The 8.3 suggested on this app is both McAlpine and Campbell greenways and one way.

This time I finished the Campbell trail. It was okay. It’s more for bikes, there’s a couple not official trails Into the woods. It’s nice for biking and running.

Nice park for a family outing. Didn’t get to go up to the trails in the little mountain that’s there. But it’s worth the walk and sightseeing. Cute pond with ducks.

HikingNo shade

I didn't see any goose poop, saw some dog poop mostly on the edge of the Greenway. I'd say about half of it is paved the other half is gravel. I didn't go down the whole way because you had to get onto a bridge without a pedestrian section to cross over to the rest of the trail. I started at Sardis road and took it all the way down to the bridge you would have to cross to get to the rest of the trail.

This is a greenway and not a trail. It's paved or gravel--no dirt. For this reason it can get really hot in the summer compared to a wooded trail because the vast majority of the trail is not shaded. It's an okay trail for getting a feel for your mountain bike if you've never ridden before, but even beginners will be board to death on this trail in my opinion. This is a take your kid on their training wheel bike trail. So for that sort of thing it’s perfect. Or maybe not, given that there is an unbelievable amount of dog poop and duck poop on the trail. Magnitudes more poop than on any other greenway or trail we've ridden in the Charlotte MSA. Never seen a more poopy trail in my life.
