I love to run! I love to run and look at the scenery! And this is by far the best place in Charlotte to run. Beautiful the entire way, looping in Freedom park! Bit busy on the weekends but totally worth dodging the crowd!
This is a recent addition to Charlotte (last 5 to 6 years?) It takes you through the city and through neighborhoods, much of it along Little Sugar Creek. There is a bike rental area and many restaurants and some bars along the way.
