The Carl Spangler Trail connects the First Broad River Trail to Grover Street with a natural and gravel surface path. When the trail ends, there is a pedestrian crossing on Grove Street. The sidewalk continues to Lee Street allowing the hiker, biker and walker to go from an urban area to a natural area. Along the path there is a swing that overlooks an expansive bluff of the First Broad River, perfect for a rest. The First Broad River flows through the center of the Cleveland County, NC and joins the Broad River about 2 miles north of the South Carolina boundary.
