This 3.1-mile, out-and-back trail is ideal for walking, running, and biking. The southern half of the paved trail is relatively flat and is one of the many greenways maintained by Mecklenburg County. In addition to being a designated section of the Thread Trail, this segment is also a designated section of the Lake Norman Bike Route. The northern half, opened in 2021, contains a little more terrain.
The southern half of the trail winds through wetland habitats and an old field, providing a range of habitats for wildlife that make their homes in the surrounding area. Many species of plant inhabit the damp environment. Milkweed, a butterfly attractant, is common along the trail, providing visitors with many opportunities to view colorful butterflies in the warmer months. The northern half is primarily woodlands.
