This is our longest greenway, stretching more than 7 miles. It is used by joggers, walkers, bicyclists, rollerbladers, baby strollers, and skateboarders. The western end is a paved trail through many university area neighborhoods. In the middle is a gravel trail through University Research Park. The eastern end is a paved trail passing through mature floodplain forest, under I-85 and Highway 29, and on to the Kirk Farm soccer fields near UNC-Charlotte.

This greenway is in the University City area, immediately north of UNC Charlotte.
