Irwin-Stewart Creek Greenway

NC
Category: Health & Beauty
Award: Unexpected View of Uptown in 2017
Year Won: 2017
Pick: Editor's Pick

Starting in Third Ward in uptown, run or walk or bike about a mile to the west along Irwin Creek Greenway and then Stewart Creek Greenway. When you reach the crossing at Grandin Road in Wesley Heights, stop. Turn around. Take a slow walk back through the tunnel of cherry trees and look eastward. All the trappings of a big city are there—a moving train, an NFL stadium, and skyscrapers—but you’ll feel as though you have the view all to yourself.
