Description

Surrounded by an urban environment, the Bessemer City Trail provides a quick escape to nature. The looped trail offers rolling topography in a heavily wooded setting. Not only does the trail provide an opportunity for leisure but three access points provide transportation connections for surrounding neighborhoods to access the city park, pool and community building. Visitors will encounter historic remains of the city lake style community pool and bath house built in 1923. Visitors will also have the opportunity to pick wild muscadine grapes from vines throughout the trail.

The Thread segment leads you out of the park across the street onto W Alabama Avenue where there is a gas station and into the downtown of Bessemer City.  Turn left onto N 12th Street. You'll pass historic brick buildings and cross the train tacks as you enter the main part of town.  Take a left onto W Virginia Avenue and continue down N 14th Street until the sidewalk ends. This is where The Thread segments ends for now. 

Other Information


There is an additional Carolina Thread Trail sign located off of Boston Avenue, providing pedestrian access to the trail (there is no parking permitted at this entrance).
