Trail Status

Nestled amid beautiful lakes and hardwood forests, the Anne Springs Close Greenway's a nature preserve more than twice the size of Central Park. Minutes south of Charlotte in Fort Mill, SC, its 2,100 acres serve as a natural buffer from urban development and provides a wide-open space for countless activities.

Get Close to Nature

There are countless ways to enjoy nature at the Greenway! Hike, run or bike our 40 miles of trails. Kayak, paddle board or fish in one of our lakes and ponds. Ride a horse, or try some yoga with a goat.
