The Four Mile Creek Greenway is located near downtown Matthews, North Carolina and provides access to Squirrel Lake Park and connects neighborhoods from E. John Street to S. Trade Street.. The greenway is a boardwalk and asphalt trail that passes through a mixed Loblolly and Shortleaf Pine forest that sit in a floodpain along Four Mile Creek.

On this hike, I started at the stadium west gate of the Mecklenburg Sportsplex and hiked along Four Mile Creek toward one of the small ponds along the Greenway. It’s an easy walk along a multi-use trail with convenient access along the route.
