Shelby's rail-trail winds through the western edge of the city between West Grover Street and Dixon Boulevard. Following the former right-of-way of Norfolk Southern Railroad, the unpaved pathway offers a wooded experience through nature. A highlight of the route is its suspension bridge over the First Broad River.
The trail is part of a larger network called the Carolina Thread Trail, which spans 15 counties in North and South Carolina.
There is now a gravel road access of West Grover Street, and a large attractive sign saying "First Broad River Trail." There is a large gravel parking lot, with a concrete handicap unload area, with a paved access to the trail head.
