The Buffalo Creek Preserve Trail provides a 2-mile moderately challenging hike or mountain bike ride in the rural community of Mount Pleasant, about 30 miles northeast of Charlotte. The unpaved trail winds through a 393-acre preserve with views of a restored piedmont-oak savanna, agricultural fields, and pine woodlands along Adams Creek. The preserve is managed by Catawba Lands Conservancy and provides important habitats for many bird species.
The trail is also part of the Carolina Thread Trail, a growing regional network spanning more than 250 miles of trail.
Parking is available at the western trailhead (7911 Malibu Road, Mt. Pleasant); in the parking lot, look for a Carolina Thread Trail sign designating the trail access point.
