Getting There

This is a nice urban walk/hike that is perfect for stopping by in the afternoon after work or taking the kids on a Sunday afternoon. The trail is pit gravel for the first 3/4 mile and the remainder is either asphalt or elevated wood decking for over 3 more miles. You'll be sharing the trail with hikers, joggers, walkers and bikers but the wide path allows you plenty of room. There is a small picnic area at the trailhead and benches are plentiful along the trail as well as mileage markers. There are several places to detour down to the creek and I've seen numerous birds and butterflies along the way. Accessibility: It is unclear if there are any designated handicapped-accessible spaces in the paved parking lot off of Pineville-Matthews Road, west of Johnston Road, at the north end of the trail. The trail surface is gravel or paved (wooden boardwalk, cement, and asphalt), and typically at least 6 feet wide. The estimated grade is gentle (3% or less) except for 3 short moderately steep (5 to 8% grade) sections at about the 0.1, 0.9, and 1.4 mile marks when heading south.

Mecklenburg County Park & Rec. Dept. (704)336-3854

The entrance to the greenway is off hwy#51, Pineville-Matthews Rd. at the bottom of the hill between Park and Johnston Roads. If you are heading east towards Matthews look for the sign on the right side, across from McMullen Creek Market.

Road bikingGreat!

Would recommend for running or walking, or kids on bikes - not great for cycling because of tight turns and lots of traffic.

Dang. Some of those bikers are so not considerate and NEVER alert walkers when passing. Very annoying. Other than that great trail!

Very nice trail. The scenery through the marshes is relaxing. I took this all the way next to Pike’s Nursery in Ballantyne.

Mountain bikingGreat!Muddy

Rode this today in overcast skies after heavy rain the night before. I wiped out on the deck boards 4.7 miles into the ride. It seems the bridges flood during heavy rain leaving mud on the boards. Needless to say, I wiped on a corner. Bike washed out. Otherwise a great ride.
