Description

The Forney Creek Trail - Catawba Springs Preserve Segment is a natural surface trail stretches 1.3 miles north to south along Forney Creek in eastern Lincoln County, connecting directly to the Sally’s YMCA Trail segment for a total of 2.4 miles. Hikers and bikers will enjoy exercising in a wooded, shady area as the property surrounding the trail is part of a 135-acre preserve called Catawba Springs Preserve that is protected by Catawba Lands Conservancy and the North Carolina Clean Water Management Trust Fund. Difficulty level is easy to moderate with beautiful views of Forney Creek and two impoundments once used by the Catawba Springs Hunt Club.

Many species of oaks are found in the preserve, providing nice shade along the trail and shelter for the wildlife. Occasionally, trail visitors will be treated to the sight of an eastern box turtle or other small critters meandering along in the leaf litter.
