Description

The trail is relatively flat and paved, making it easy for walkers, runners, and bikers alike. It is part of the 49 miles of the Mecklenburg greenway system in addition to being a apart of Carolina Thread Trail system. The 4.8-mile section runs along side Little Sugar Creek, a beautiful and critical habitat.

There a number of bridges connecting to the neighborhoods and Park Road Park. The 124-acre park features a brand new playground, baseball and softball fields, an 11-acre pond with a pier and lighted tennis courts. 

**Please note that the southern terminus of Little Sugar Creek Greenway at the NC-SC state line does not have public parking. If you are planning a trip to that location, the nearest trailheads are at Pineville Lake Park and James K. Polk Historic Site.

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.

2/11/23: Spotted daffodils in full bloom, most likely the bulbs were replanted by the local squirrel population. Also spotted two bucks in the woods (creek side). It was a nice day for a run.
