This 1.4-mile trail is currently made up of a 0.8-mile section in the Millbridge neighborhood and a 0.6-mile segment in the Town Creek Park.

The Millbidge section begins as a natural surface trail on the North Carolina side of Twelve Mile Creek, adding to the 3.5-mile Twelve Mile Creek Trail at Walnut Creek Park. After crossing over the Twelve Mile Creek suspension bridge, the 0.8-mile natural surface trail twists and turns before opening up on Millbridge Parkway within the Millbridge housing development. The trail then becomes a paved greenway winding through undeveloped green space along the creek. The Millbridge portion connects to H.C. Nesbit Park where parking for the trail is located.

The Town Creek Park section makes for a nice stroll around a grassy meadow. The trail is bordered by large trees to the north and west and a log cabin to the south. The trail currently connects existing trails in the Prescot neighborhood to Town Creek Park. The trail is paved, providing easy access for strollers, road bikes, handicapped visitors.The trail will eventually connect to the future Millbridge subdivision trails to the west in Lancaster, S.C. where currently, another 3.5 miles of trail is open to the public. 

Other Information

The two segments of the Twelve Mile Creek Greenway currently do not connect and must be accessed from two different trailheads. 

Park at H.C. Nesbit Park to access the trail segment that leads to the suspension bridge over Twelve Mile Creek. This bridge is not accessible from the Town Creek Park parking area.
