About the 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.
