Mallard and Clark's Creek Greenway

Paved Greenway = 5.9 Miles
University Research Trail = 1.2 Miles

Clark's Creek and Mallard Creek Greenways are a great place to explore in the late summer or early fall when the butterflies are flying. Watch for gulf fritillaries, buckeyes, and bright, orange monarch butterflies migrating south to their wintering grounds in Mexico.

Joggers, walkers, bicyclers, roller bladers, baby strollers, and skateboarders all use this paved path that stretches 4.3 miles to the University Research Park. A 1.2 mile gravel trail through the University Research Park connects greenway visitors to the newly constructed 1.6 mile section of Mallard Creek Greenway. From David Taylor Drive, the greenway meanders through mature floodplain forest and follows the creek under Interstate 85 and Highway 29 to the Kirk Family Fields off of Mallard Creek Church Road.

Great blue herons, gray fox, white tailed deer and a wide variety of birds, including red-tailed hawks can be spotted. In the spring and summer you may see beaver and muskrats.
