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.

Even surfaces but right next to neighborhoods. Good urban trail.

Very nice and well maintained by the county. Always see wildlife on this trail. Does flood out and get muddy in a few spots but just wait a few days and it's fine. Been riding my MTB on it for a nice, quick lunch ride for several years now. Always a nice stress reliever.

Pretty area, easy and nice trail. I was surprised by the lack of smiles when passing people...odd.

It's definitely Charlotte. You could google directions to the "McMullen creek greenway parking" and that will take you to the lot, not people's homes. Nice easy walk, mostly paved and boardwalks with slight hills.

The Getting There instructions are for Charlotte, NOT Monroe, NC. The map location is showing Monroe, NC just off of Hwy 200. This is conflicting information. What is the real location in Monroe, NC?

The Greenway just keep getting better as they produce more sections. Love this urban stroll for the combination of city and the outdoors. This one is a regular.

This is an easy, pretty and safe walk. Spring Heron Rookery is a must see!
