It is an easy walk most of the trail, but there are some cool stuff along the way, like a huge bee hotel!

I can't thank you enough for posting this! I would never have been bold enough to go through the textile mill parking lot, or past the bogus sign at the state park that warns to get permission to enter private property (the segment of trail it is in front of is actually still all on state land -- I think side trails do extend onto private property but not the main trail). This trail is a great way to connect the state park trails with the riverwalk, and you can add even more hiking at the speedway for added fitness.

Nice, peaceful, easy walk

A beautiful trail.

One of my favorite escapes in the entire Piedmont, this trail meanders through forest and meadows. It passes by a stately Federal-era plantation house and comes within a few feet of the Old Trading Path used by Native Americans and European settlers hundreds of years ago. My favorite thing to do here is picnic by a pond that offers picturesque hills covered with majestic hardwoods in the background.
