Welcome to Statesville‚Äôs Greenway Trail! 


The City of Statesville Greenway Trail is a great way to exercise while enjoying the beautiful outdoors. You can walk, jog, hike, and even bike on the trail while avoiding large crowds and motorized vehicles.

The greenway is made up of 4 sections available for use that will eventually connect together for one continuous trail that encircles Statesville.

Here are some facts about the greenway:

  • The trail was established in 2001.
  • Combining the different sections, the trail currently covers 6 miles.
  • The entire trail will eventually be paved 10 feet wide with asphalt.
  • The Fourth Creek section of the trail is the only section that is currently paved.
