This is our longest greenway, stretching more than 7 miles. It is used by joggers, walkers, bicyclists, rollerbladers, baby strollers, and skateboarders.

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.
