Salisbury Greenway

The Salisbury Greenway links several parks via greenways connected by neighborhood streets and sidewalks. The existing segments total 4.1 miles and provides numerous opportunities to view wildlife along Grants Creek and its tributary.

Salisbury Greenway is a network of greenways and sidewalks weaving from Milford Hills Road near Grants Creek, through Kelsey Scott Park, along residential streets, through Forest Hill Park, and past Mahaley Park to reconnect with Grants Creek and reach Prescot Drive. Another greenway segment in the network connects Hogans Valley Way to Forestdale Drive at the back of Catawba College. Eventually, as design progresses on two more segments, the Salisbury Greenway will become a 5.2-mile loop.

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.

Trail Tips

Avoid the Ivy

Thank you so much for your comment Kevin, it's always great to hear what folks are actually experiencing on the trails. The Thread Trail is actually in the middle of a multi-year effort to refresh and add new signage to all of our trails, so this would be the right time to get more trail markers out on the Salisbury Greenway. I will make sure to mention it to our Director!

Well planned and maintained, lacking in Trail Markers. Which is compounded with no crosswalks, while traversing, three highly traveled city streets.
Hang Tight!
