Hoover Creek & Walker Branch Greenways 

 Download Map 



Tucked away beside RiverGate shopping center, this .69 mile of greenway is small but significant.  This greenway is the first greenway constructed in southwest Mecklenburg County.  When you happen upon this trail, it offers a restful excursion through a streamside forest.  In the future, Walker Branch Greenway will be connected to extensive trails leading into South Carolina and north on Steele Creek to Olympic High School.


Nature Facts:

Careful observers can find White-tailed deer, Raccoon, and Opossum tracks along the creek and should watch for migrating songbirds in the large Green Ash, Sycamore, and Southern Hackberry trees during spring and fall. During the summer, a diversity of butterflies and dragonflies frequent the moist floodplain pools and small tributaries.
