Baxter Village Trail Description

The Baxter Village Trail is nestled in a neighborhood of Fort Mill, which lies on the northern border of South Carolina (Charlotte, North Carolina, is just over the state line). The trail has a natural surface and is moderately hilly. It winds through wooded areas, crosses a few quiet residential streets, and offers views of small streams. A highlight is an observation deck overlooking the Catawba River.

The 3.3-mile route is part of a larger 9-mile system throughout the Baxter Village community, as well the regional Carolina Thread Trail, which stretches across North and South Carolina.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available near the east end of the trail at 1712 1st Baxter Crossing, Fort Mill.

Baxter Village Trail Reviews

Amazing Date Hike

My boyfriend & I took our dog on this hike. It was so much fun. Make sure that you follow the signs because there are so many different trails intertwining throughout the hike. Using the map is ideal in a few places but mostly, just follow the signs. It was an amazing day hike, however; I’d recommend going earlier during the day because we got to the end of the trial & it was sunset. The most beautiful sunset view I’ve seen in a while. We walked back through the neighborhood because it was dark, that was also beautiful & very well lit. We will definitely be back.

Catawba River

Difficult trail. Many tree roots and water erosion that has created deep channels. Took my kids and too difficult for the 10 year old, so 2 stars. Good for Mt Bikers looking for a technical challenge.
