Trailhead Location: In seasons with heavy foliage, visitors might be unable view the Carolina Thread Trail sign. The sign is located at the hand-carry boat launch access point for Clark Creek.
This 0.3-mile natural surface trail is very wide and a great place to walk. The property also features a canoe and kayak launch along Clark Creek. This segment of The Thread Trail will eventually connect to City Park, the Marcia H. Cloninger Rail Trail and the South Fork River. The Lincoln County Historical Society owns and maintains this segment of the Thread Trail.
Special Note: Clark Creek connects to the South Fork Blueway. Paddlers should be advised that Clark's Creek is a narrow and shallow creek. Paddlers may encounter downed trees that require portage. Experienced paddlers only.
Although this trail is relatively short, it offers excellent views of the battleground's historic buildings. The trail intersects the site of a major revolutionary war battle, the Battle of Ramsour Mill. This battle was an important victory for the Patriots, but was a costly battle for both sides. At least four known graves are located on the property.
