Description:Torrence Creek Greenway runs 1.4 miles through woods and behind neighborhoods off Gilead Road in Huntersville. The western section of the greenway runs through a meadow, where neighbors say they often see deer. The eastern section passes by a series of large rock formations, with some rocks as big as school buses. Short sections of the greenway are boardwalks that meander through wetlands.
It's a great place to hike or ride a bike, especially with children, who will love to see the unusual rock formations. Adults will be surprised how much fun the almost three mile up-and-back trip can be.

Rotting trees provide good microhabitat site for wildlife species such as the white-spotted slimy salamander. This animal hides beneath the logs and searches for worms and insects for food. Roll and log and take a look, but don’t touch…the slimy salamander’s slime is so strong it can glue your fingers together!
