The Muddy Creek Greenway follows its namesake waterway through woodlands and meadows in the western outskirts of Winston-Salem. The mix of environments makes the trail a birdwatchers paradise. Cardinals, bluebirds, chickadees and woodpeckers can frequently be found in the trees along the trail. In the open areas, look for blackbirds, meadowlarks and wild turkeys. From the banks of the creek, you may see herons, kingfishers, ducks and even a hawk circling above for a meal.
Parking and Trail Access
At the northern end of the trail, a gravel parking area is available at the intersection of Jefferson School Lane and Robinhood Road. Another gravel parking lot is available at the southern end of the trail off Meadowlark Drive beside the Meadowlark Middle and Elementary School (301 Meadowlark Drive). The trail entrance is marked by a green wooden sign.
