About Charlotte’s Greenways

Charlotte is situated in Mecklenburg County, featuring an elaborate system of linear parks, or greenways. They not only support wildlife and water quality but connect visitors and locals to destinations across the area.

The county holds 52 miles of developed greenway trails, many of which fit under the greater Carolina Thread Trail, a regional network of trails reaching across 15 counties. The best part? This is just the beginning of local greenway development – there’s so much more to come.
