Nature Awaits – An Update on the Carolina Thread Trail
If the hustle and bustle of everyday life is wearing you down, know that a quiet retreat is in your backyard – literally. For years, Millbridge has offered access to community trails and parks that beg you to dust off your hiking shoes, pack the picnic basket and embrace the great outdoors. Additionally, Carolina Thread Trail, a regional network of greenways, trails and blueways, has run right through the MillBridge community for quite some time. But now, your exploration path has been expanded …
A new cross-state suspension bridge now connects the Twelve Mile Creek Greenway in Waxhaw, N.C., with the Twelve Mile Creek Trail in Lancaster, S.C., creating four continuous miles of pathway. Experience being in two places at once!
With summer upon us, and more light at night, it’s the perfect time to take advantage. Hop on to the trail with the dog for a walk, the kids for a bike ride, a significant other for a jog or by yourself to explore and unwind. Trails crisscross the community, connecting neighborhoods with parks, the school and creek. What’s even better is that they connect (and bridge) neighbors, too. See you on the trail!
