Part of the Carolina Thread Trail This 2.8-mile natural surface trail meanders along the shoreline of Lake Wylie and is located on 78 acres of preserved land managed by the Catawba Lands Conservancy (CLC). The trail also connects to other trails at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, including two segments at either end of the trail that create a 5-mile loop from the trailhead at the Seven Oaks Preserve Trail. The Persimmon Trail connects to the garden's parking lot. Visitors can continue along the back side of the parking lot along the Boulevard Trail and can then pick up on the Worrell Trail. The Worrell Trail connects back to the Seven Oaks Preserve Trail and finishes the loop. Visitors do not have to pay the garden to walk on their trails.
Very nice easy hike. Few trail runners. Lots of folks with dogs. A bit muddy in spots, but overall well maintained. Pretty trail along a lake.
This was a nice easy hike! Map is all wrong on here... So you can't check-in on the app.
Great family hike. Easy and clear paths, well maintained and ready to use!
