“Great spot for a walk or picnic”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Several sections to this lovely greenway. You can enjoy a hike across a swinging bridge, through the woods, or around the lake. Small children might enjoy seeing the horses or the big barn.

“A place to catch your breath on the outskirts of Charlotte”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Within 20 minutes of Charlotte, the greenway is the antidote to all of the concrete and traffic of the big city. Park at the dairy barn at 21 bypass entrance and you will feel the stress melt away as soon as you exit your car. Pay the paltry $3.00 user fee (it's a bargain and the greenway needs it because it is not tax subsidized), grab a helpful map, and take the concrete path. The path quickly gives way to a dirt road that meanders by several picturesque cabins and through lush horse pastures. By the time, the path dips down toward Steele Creek, you will feel like a new person with your worries left behind. When you get to Steele Creek, you will feel the coolness of the deep green forest and the babbling water envelop you. Pause at the creek if you like or take your time to dip your feet in the water and listen to the birds serenading you. When you are ready to continue, bounce across the fun but very safe suspension bridge and continue on to an engaging nature center. Or, take one of about 32 miles of trails throughout this 2300 acre oasis. You will be so glad you made time in your busy life for this bit of sanity.

“Anne Springs Close Greenway on Earth Day”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I visited the Anne Springs Close Greenway on Earth Day last year and it was a very interesting experience. On Earth Day 2013 admission was free and hope they continue that for 2014 as this greenway is an excellent example of a private greenway that is well maintained with modest admission fees to have a glimpse of the history in the Fort Mill area. Surprised to see a portion of the first road that began in Philadelphia and went thru the Greenway as it continued South. I have driven multiple times to PA and NJ normally taking 77/81 or 80/95 so it would be interesting to see the route of this old highway which was used if memory serves me right by General Washington in the revolutionary war. So note your calendars for Earth Day 2014 as the historic sights are manned by volunteers to relate "the rest of the story of the Anne Springs Close Greenway."

This greenway is an absolute treasure! It's loaded with trails for hikers, bikers, and horses. Lakes, camping, festivals, it's all here. It's the perfect place to unwind or wind up.
