Cane Creek Park has a lot to offer. Located to the south of Charlotte in Waxhaw, the park has an extensive day-use area and a large campground that surround a 350- acre prized-bass lake. The property is connected by an extensive trail network. Some of the trails are for hikers only, while others are multiuse trails that are shared by hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders. This route explores several different trails in the day-use area. It first follows the Red Trail that weaves through the forest and traces the parks northern boundary. Then the path veers south to meet the banks of Cane Creek Lake. Once it arrives at the water, the hike travels the Orange Trail to encounter stunning views of Cane Creek Lake. Then the path joins the Yellow Trail to explore several of the parks recreational facilities, including a boating dock, picnic area, playground, and even a miniature golf course. These amenities are located very near the trailhead and can be enjoyed before or after the hike.
