North Prong Clarke Creek Greenway is a planned greenway in Huntersville on the County’s Master Plan that is anticipated to extend from Clarke Creek near the Skybrook neighborhood to Ramah Church Road at build-out and will be approximately 2.25 miles long. The trail will connect residential neighborhoods to Oehler Nature Preserve to the south as well as to Clarke Creek Greenway which will eventually terminate at the Cabarrus County line.


The subject property is being donated to the County as part of the land transaction related to the proposed Ramsey’s Glen single-family neighborhood development in Huntersville. The developer purchased land for the development but does not want the subject property as it is oddly shaped and has the creek running through the middle.  It made sense for the County to take ownership since the property is located along a greenway corridor.  Acquisition of this property is consistent with the County’s Greenway Master Plan.
