Located near Charlotte, the trail is easy to find from exit 485 at 3185 Pineville-Mathers Road. You will also find a bathroom at this spot that the pawblic is permitted to use. 

Though it is recommended that this trail be visited at its prime from March through May, you can stop by any time of year to take your pupperoni for a day of reconnecting with nature. Just be sure to keep your pooch leashed at all times.

There are also benches scattered throughout the trail where you can kick back and relax with your best canine pal. Your travels will take you through wooded areas and wetlands, but there are also numerous little detours you can take to enjoy some creek views or even just observing the wildlife that makes this area its home. Bring along your camera to capture some shots of the scenery and animals you come across on your hike.
