Description

Clark's Creek and Mallard Creek Greenways are a great place to explore in the late summer or early fall when butterflies can be found in abundance. Great blue herons, gray foxes, white-tailed deer and a wide variety of birds can be spotted much of the year along these greenways. Joggers, walkers, bikers, roller bladers, skateboarders and those with jogging strollers find these greenways a great place to get outdoors. The paved surface trail is approximately 6 miles one way and includes a shorter gravel trail (University Research Park trail) that connects to a newer segment of the Mallard Creek Greenway.

Other Information

There are numerous neighborhood connections throughout the greenway.
