Latta has history and solitude. Took a very pleasant 5 mile walk during the week, never encountering other hikers. A terrific green space just north of Charlotte. Also has equestrian center and riding trails Great place to get away from the crowds

What a great gem, just outside Charlotte. Beautiful for a stroll along the paths and lake, and stables available for riding horses.
