Description

Following the banks of the Lyle Creek, this enhanced surface section of 1.6-mile Thread Trail is an excellent location for biking, hiking and natural wildlife viewing, especially bird watching. Between County Home Road and Northern Drive NW, the trail splits to form a loop about 1/8 mile long before coming back together and continuing. The Lyle Creek Greenway completes a 6.5-mile loop encircling the City of Conover. A true community effort, Tri-City Christian School and their cross country team have partnered with the City to both use the trail and to maintain it. 

Other Information

This trail is "green"! The surface of this trail was partially produced using recycled concrete materials.

Falcon Trail Takes Flight in Stanly County
Falcon Trail Takes Flight in Stanly County
Expanding the Carolina Thread Trail in rural communities takes a different approach than in urban centers. Even though the Village of Misenheimer is tiny (only 650 residents as of the last census), they have an outsized commitment to building the Thread Trail.

Trail Tips

Ride Safe
When biking, wear a helmet and use a bell to signal your approach to other trail users. Consider bringing a spare tube and pump so that you can fix a flat tire and offer help to other cyclists in need. When riding on roads, bike in the same direction as traffic.
