The Twelve Mile Creek Trail, which runs through Walnut Creek Park and the Walnut Creek neighborhood in Lancaster, is part of the Carolina Thread Trail, a growing trail network of more than 200 miles across North and South Carolina.
Surrounded by trees and following its namesake creek, this trail offers a wooded paradise for anyone who loves the outdoors. Various surface types provide a vast array of activities for any nature-loving adventure seeker.
The Twelve Mile Creek Trail will eventually provide the scenic backdrop for a new residential and commercial development and provide a path all the way to the Twelve Mile Creek Greenway in Waxhaw, NC.
A trailhead and parking are available in Walnut Creek Park (10521 Walnut Creek Parkway, Lancaster). An additional access point (but not parking) is available at Carrington Drive for people on foot or bike.
