CONNECT Beyond: A Regional Mobility Initiative

Gaston County is part of a 12 county region in NC and SC with robust growth and this trend will continue. In an effort to plan for the future, a long-term mobility plan is in the works to create new connectivity between these counties. This connectivity will connect resources, people, and communities together. To make this a success, your input is needed! Please visit the Online Meeting and Public Survey to tell us where you go want to and how you want to get there!

Carolina Thread Trail

The City of Lowell adopted the Carolina Thread Trail Master Plan in 2009. 

Based on data from the 15-county Carolina Thread Trail, Gaston County has more developed greenways/trails than any other county in that network. In addition, Gaston County is unique in having a blueway for those interested in kayaking and canoeing. With all of these wonderful resources for outdoor adventure, the Carolina Thread Trail's website is a way to showcase these assets to our local citizens as well as outdoor enthusiasts who may want to visit our county.
