Description

The Masons Bend Trail is a winding 1.9-mile natural surface trail running adjacent to the new Masons Bend community.   It connects directly into the Founders Trail and provides outstanding views of the Catawba River.  It also traverses the new Masons Bend development.  The trail corridor along the river has historical importance in the area.  The Catawba River has provided farming, hunting and fishing for the Native Americans and settlers who came later.  Years later a former quarry near present day Masons Bend was used for the stone that built the Lake Wylie Dam, just a few miles to the north. 

Masons Bend Trial shares a trailhead parking area with Founders Trail.  Follow the river north to enjoy the Masons Bend Trail or south to experience the Founders Trail that will eventually lead you to Riverwalk and another four miles of Carolina Thread Trail.

Going the Distance: 65-Mile Rocky River/Pee Dee River Blueways Open
Great Blue Herons glide overhead; a cluster of deer swim soundlessly across the channel; an elusive bald eagle skims the treetops overhead as miles and miles of secluded flatwater paddling unfold down river. Could this idyllic adventure be just 30 minutes outside Uptown Charlotte? For the first time this spring, the answer is yes with the completion of the Rocky River and Pee Dee River Blueways.
