Charlotte Area Greenways



The expanding network of greenways through Charlotte, NC, has been a welcoming joy for runners of all levels. From interval training to long runs, this network of trails provides the perfect escape from your typical neighborhood sidewalk loop. The way the routes tuck into and out of different neighborhoods allows you to explore our region's changing landscape and architecture. Throw on your favorite tunes and get lost in the adventure. Be sure to carry water with you as many of these greenways are true to their nature in that you may see a passing deer and a lone bench on your route but don't expect to find many bathroom stops. As always, don't forget to tell someone you're going for a run.
