Trailhead Location: In seasons with heavy foliage, visitors might be unable view the Carolina Thread Trail sign. The sign is located at the hand-carry boat launch access point for Clark Creek.
This 0.3-mile natural surface trail is very wide and a great place to walk. This segment of The Thread skirts will eventually connect to City Park, the Marcia H. Cloninger Rail Trail and the South Fork River.
Although this trail is relatively short, it offers excellent views of the battleground's historic buildings and a small creek. The trail intersects the site of a major revolutionary war battle, the Battle of Ramsour Mill. This battle was an important victory for the Patriots, but was a costly battle for both sides. At least four known graves are located on site. Click here to learn more about the local history.
