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.

The Carolina Thread Trail portion of the Heritage Greenway stretches 0.8 miles. There is an additional segment of trail, not part of The Thread, that is referred to as Phase II of the greenway. The Phase II portion adds an additional 0.7 miles of trail to the Thread Trail segment, creating a 1.5 miles of trail in total and connects trail users to the City of Newton. The Heritage Trail Greenway is relatively flat and provides a nice place to walk, run, or bike.

Think About Drinks

It’s a good idea to drink water or hydrating fluids during the day, especially when you’re active. Bring along a water bottle or hydration backpack on the trail.
