swift water, rocky shoals and tons of lilies in the spring !! This 460 acre park is well maintained and has the remains of a historic path that bypassed the rocky shoals of the Catawba River. It features ruins of canal-culverts, stone bridges, locks, an historic mill site and a lockkeepers house. The shoals are home to one of the worlds largest populations of rocky shoals spider lilies which are usually in full bloom from late April to June. There is a viewing area for the lilies along the trail which closely follows the banks of the river.

My favorite park in the area. I go here often. The trails are well maintained. Nice hike when you just need to get outdoors and clear your mind.

Worth a detour to get there. May try and go back in spring for Lilly bloom. Easy run.

Great hike along the river with a little history thrown in too. Added bonus if you go when the lilies are blooming.
