Campbell Creek Greenway

Campbell Creek Greenway runs along a headwater tributary to McAlpine Creek between Margaret Wallace Road and Harris Boulevard.  Don’t miss the remains of abandoned turn-of-the century Lucas family grist mill midway along the trail!  Campbell Creek Greenway connects to Upper McAlpine Creek Greenway at Margaret Wallace Road. View map

Nature Facts:

Campbell Creek Greenway was the last documented location for Queen snakes in Mecklenburg County in the early 1990's.  This snake species requires clean, clear, rocky stream habitats to survive.  Recent survey attempts to find Queen snakes have proved unsuccessful.  Keep your eyes open and help us relocate the Queen snake in the Queen City.
