Nice trail considering it's in town. I hiked the 7 miles roundtrip from the library to Catawba River. The first 1/2 mile is paved and then it is dirt. Tip.. when you cross the road a little pass the lift station, go right and look for the trail a little bit after the fence on the left. I missed this and ended up walking the sidewalk for a while. There is a nice picnic table at the river.

1 star trail, not sure why it's locking me into 4 stars.

Not worth a trip unless you live in the community it winds through. It's the excess green space in-between the houses of a subdivision. Good if you live in the sub-division, but not worth the anything over a 10 minute drive to get there.

This is a great trail with something for everyone. There are multiple loops that you can piece together for a good 8 mile+ ride. The loop down by the river is super fun. The local trail club does a great job of keeping the trails up.

This is nice is you live in Baxter, but by no means make a special trip here. It follows a creek for about a half mile, and then you need to turn around. If it has rained at all recently it will be very muddy and slick.
