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.

Going the Distance: 65-Mile Rocky River/Pee Dee River Blueways Open
Great Blue Herons glide overhead; a cluster of deer swim soundlessly across the channel; an elusive bald eagle skims the treetops overhead as miles and miles of secluded flatwater paddling unfold down river. Could this idyllic adventure be just 30 minutes outside Uptown Charlotte? For the first time this spring, the answer is yes with the completion of the Rocky River and Pee Dee River Blueways.
