Description

This greenway segment is part of a 6-mile network of trails and sidewalks in Davidson. The wide paved trail accommodates walkers, runners, and bikers. This trail winds along a pleasant creek and through neighborhoods in the town of Davidson. Occasional benches line the trail and provide comfortable resting spots for trail visitors. Recently, the city of Cornelius extended the greenway into the Antiquity neighborhood. So now the community can enjoy an 8.5-mile hike or ride from Antiquity Greenway to the West Branch Nature Preserve Trail.
