The Carolina Thread Trail in Gaston County

Categories: Tips | Posted: October 4, 2018 | Comments Off on The Carolina Thread Trail in Gaston County

One of the best parts of living at McLean in Belmont is its Gaston County location. We are surrounded by natural beauty and tons of recreational opportunities. A particular favorite here at Evans Coghill Homes is The Carolina Thread Trail. This geographic wonder is awesome and fun – and so close by!  

  • Launched in 2007, The Carolina Thread Trail is a regional network of trails that connect 2.9 million people in 15 counties in North and South Carolina. Locally, hiking in gaston countythere are several trails, greenways, connectors and blueways.
  • The Thread Trail connects people and communities to nature and each other via 1,610 miles of trails, greenways and blueways. Visitors can walk, hike, run, bike, paddle or horseback ride their way along the trails.
  • Nearly 30,000 acres of open space are protected across the 270 miles of completed trails in the network. This helps to preserve habitat for many plants, insects and animals that are important and unique to this region.
  • The name, Carolina Thread Trail, is rooted in the region’s textile heritage. The intricate network of trails weaves together people, communities and nature into one tapestry.
  • The Thread Trail is a free, accessible community asset. It offers opportunities for recreation and exercise to everyone. It also provides a safe place for people to experience a sense of community and create stronger social ties.
  • The network includes both pre-existing trails and greenways, as well as future routes that will link trails together. New trails are constantly being built to expand the network and connect existing segments.
  • The Carolina Thread Trail is good for the environment. Greenways and trails restore natural corridors within densely populated regions, and preserve them in areas soon to be developed. This is particularly important in a rapidly growing area like the Charlotte region.
