Rail Trail

The Charlotte Rail Trail, our only linear park, connects Uptown and South End as it winds its way alongside the light rail line. The trail is decorated with public plazas and works of art; is a destination for fitness enthusiasts who run, bike or walk their pups; and a transit hub that links businesses, residents and visitors.

The Rail Trail continues to grow--with the recent announcement of a pedestrian bridge that will span across I-277, expected to start construction in the summer of 2021.
