Trail linking area counties underway

A trail linking 15 counties in the Charlotte are is underway. The realization of the Carolina Thread Trail began with the opening of the publicly accessible, three-mile Rocky Creek Trail along the Catawba River south of Charlotte, according to a story by the Charlotte Observer's Bruce Henderson.

An S.C. state grant paid for the Rocky Creek Trail. The National Audubon Society has designated the trail and the surrounding land on both sides of the river an Important Bird Area, marking its significance as wildlife habitat.

The Great Falls Hometown Association, Katawba Valley Land Trust, the town of Great Falls, S.C., parks and natural resources departments and Audubon South Carolina partnered to develop the trail.
