Kit Creek PhotoKit Creek Greenway parallels Louis Stephens Drive just north of Morrisville parkway and alongside Carpenter Elementary School passing between the Olde Carpenter and Carpenter Village Subdivisions. Future plans are for this greenway to extend about two miles north from the current end until it joins up with future sections of the Louis Stephens Street-Side Trail. From there, future street-side trails are planned to go all the way to Kit Creek Road at the northern edge of Cary.
