When out on trail in cooler weather, wear layers which are easy to add/remove so that you can maintain a comfortable temperature.
This trail has a gravel surface and is ideal for walking, running, and biking. The trail follows the banks of Mountain Island Lake, just to the right of Mountain Island Lake dam. At the end of the trail there is a loop which provides access to a secondary trail, but the main trail loops back on itself toward the end and then retraces the original trail back to the parking lot.
Almost the entire length of the trail is shaded by mature trees during the spring and summer months. A small playground, viewing area, and field are accessible from this segment of the Thread Trail.
