Lower McAlpine Creek, McMullen Creek, and Four-Mile Creek Greenway Professional Review and Guide
"Usually hiking is differentiated from everyday walking by features such as mountains, forests, lakes, and dirt trails. A residential greenway has to be pretty amazing to be included in a hiking book. The Lower McAlpine Creek, McMullen Creek, and Four-Mile Creek Greenway hike does not pass any mountains or lakes, its trees are too sparse to be considered a forest, and it contains hardly any dirt tread. But it does include some beautiful wetlands and the most impressive stretch of wooden boardwalks in the region. This entire route is 5.8 miles long and can be completed in sections, as a shuttle, or as a long out-and-back hike. Whichever option you choose, you will be amazed at the natural treasures that are revealed behind residential neighborhoods and below the interstate overpass. The entire route travels beside creeks and over wetlands, where waterfowl and songbirds gather throughout the year. In addition, its proximity to downtown will have you coming back to this wooden, wet greenway time and time again."
