Description

Runners, walkers, cyclists, inline skaters, skateboarders and those with jogging strollers find Clarks Creek and Mallard Creek Greenways a great place to get outdoors. There are numerous neighborhood connections throughout the greenway. Great blue herons, gray foxes, white-tailed deer and a wide variety of birds can be spotted much of the year.  In the late summer or early fall butterflies can be found in abundance.

The Clarks Creek and Mallard Creek Greenway is among the longest greenways in the region. Mallard Creek Greenway is part of the Cross-Charlotte Trail, a partnership between Mecklenburg County and the City of Charlotte that strives to develop a 26 mile contiguous trail.  This greenway will eventually connect the SC/NC State line to Cabarrus County."
