Highland Rail Trail

Highland Trail

March, 2017 by sbkolb

This has the potential to be better but right now, hardly worth it. Took longer to load and unload the bikes than it did to ride the trail and part of it is an overgrown, gravel path. Dead-ends at 321 (a very busy 4-6 lane highway) and no way to get across to Rankin Lake (a very nice park). Maybe, someday, the city will figure a way to cross 321 to get to the park.

Buffalo Creek Preserve Trail

Good trail

February, 2017 by laneyb85

It was a nice mix of hills and flat ground. Not strenuous at all. It is dog friendly but they might not be willing to cross the suspension bridge. It was definitely popular when we went on a Sunday. You can access the creek along the trail of you want to play in the water.

Roger F. Snyder Greenway

Nice, but nothing fancy

February, 2017 by jackritterskamp

We parked at the city park as suggested, rode south to Main St then doubled back and along US 52 to Salisbury Ave (using the wide paved path made, bumpy by tree roots). After crossing the train tracks we explored and went north across Salisbury to the end of the greenway. This section is not on the trail map since it is very difficult (the gravel is loose so we parked and walked much of that section). Turning south from Salisbury is the best part of the ride as it's an old rail bed and is well paved. Near the middle of that leg is the Glenn St parking, accessed by a walking ramp.

Stay South of Morehead

January, 2017 by jhaake_tl

Only skate South of Morehead St. Anything North of that takes you through downtown, crossing streets and detours through town to link back up to the rest of the trail along the rail line.

Loved it! As others have mentioned, this is more of a singletrack mountain biking or hiking trail.

Love the diverse topography of this trail! My lab and I love exploring along the creek and in the fall, the color is full of yellows, oranges, browns and some beautiful reds! Also a nice mix up of easy and moderate hiking.

Awesome Trail

October, 2016 by bpeterson0217

This trail was moderate in difficulty but the scenery was very nice. The best part was that there was not a lot of people here and the suspension bridge was an added bonus

Marcia H. Cloninger Rail-Trail

October, 2016 by mumasaurus

First of all, don't follow the posted direction. It's exit 17 off of I85. If you go to Aspen Street there is a city park with plenty of parking. Enjoyed the trail. The colours should be really pretty in about 2 more weeks. Stop for breakfast at Harvest Moon Grill.

Avon and Catawba Creeks Greenway

Improved recently

October, 2016 by eawaldo1

The portion I have been on is very nice. It has recently been improved with much more parking at lineberger park and also a branch off trail that has parking at ferguson park..you can see this trail map on the carolina thread trails link.

Kings Mountain Gateway Trail

map not updated

August, 2016 by tjconstruction1

Once you get off the pavement onto the gravel , the challenge begins. The gravel is large and hard to control your bike. The trail now crosses the interstate but not sure how far it goes. The map is not up to date.
