Hominy Creek Greenway

Posted By on April 6, 2020

.85 miles; Asheville, NC

Pretty little trail that follows Hominy Creek. It was only .85-mile long, but the walk to and from was “a bit” longer than that. I totaled 7-1/2 miles on this stroll.

Shop • Drink • Get Married

Walking through West Asheville is always fun. There are some pretty interesting shops and restaurants, including this one, one of my favorites. Fleetwood’s Rock’n’roll Wedding Chapel and Bar, AND Vintage Shop. Too bad about them not being open.

Trail Head Kiosk

This little greenway was very close to I-26, and the parking lot was actually surprisingly full considering I barely met anyone as I walked along the trail.

The Trail

This trail is not paved, which is kind of a nice change of pace. Springtime is really moving along down here. I believe that burst of yellow is Golden Ragwort.

Hominy Creek

There’s even a nice little beach along this trail, with a sandy gravelly surface. Dogs really love this spot according to the reviews on AllTrails.

Philadelphia Fleabane

I have no idea whether or not this plant originated in Philadelphia, nor do I know if it’s particularly fatal to fleas, but it is bright and sunny and happy-looking. I’m documenting the various wildflowers I see on my jaunts, which should be of special interest to my Northern friends. Be sure to “Like” the Auntie Beak’s Place Facebook page, or follow me on Twitter, so you don’t miss any.

You can find out more about the Hominy Creek Greenway and indeed all the City of Asheville Greenways, from this city website. As always, click the image above for details about this hike and to download the gps track.
