Following the banks of the Lyle Creek, this new enhanced surface section of 1.6-mile Thread Trail is an excellent location for biking, hiking and natural wildlife viewing, especially bird watching. This segment 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
