​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​PROJECT OVERVIEW ​

This project will complete a new segment of the Cross Charlotte Trail through the Hidden Valley neighborhood from approximately North Tryon Street to ​Orr Road. The project team will identify locations that will connect the trail to the broader area bicycle and pedestrian network as well as to the LYNX Blue Line Extension. The specific project limits and trail alignment will be defined during the planning and design phases and will be posted on this page and shared with nearby residents and businesses once they are determined.


​The goals for this segment of the trail are ​​​the following:

  • Comfortable - Separated from streets and traffic as much as possible within project budget and other constraints​

  • Accessible and bicycle-friendly - Hard surf​ace suitable for bikes and wheelchairs, smooth turns and limited slopes to meet ADA requirements

  • Enjoyable - Amenities to enhance enjoyment and safety, such as signage, benches, trashcans, landscaping, aesthetic treatments and public art

  • Expandable - Provide opportunities for additional connections and amenities in the future


​​The project team will engage nearby residents, businesses and other stakeholders in numerous ways through​out the planning process. Engagement opportunities may include charrettes, walking tours and public meetings. Details will be shared with residents and businesses once they are determined, and they will be posted on this page and on the Citywide Events Calendar.

​The following public involvement activities have been scheduled or have taken place​:

  • Dec. 2, 2017 - Hidden Valley Community Parade and Festival
