Carolina Thread Trail

The Carolina Thread Trail is a regional network of trails, or “threads”, which will ultimately link 15 counties in North and South Carolina. These threads are composed of local trails and greenways which, while maintaining their local identities, will grow to form a "green interstate" offering trail-users access to regional attractions. “The Thread” will continue to evolve over time, linking parks, green spaces, and cultural destinations throughout the region. The goal of the Matthews Study is to identify trail corridors, routes, and segments which will establish connectivity with The Thread and locally-based greenways, and meet the desires of the Matthews community.
