Carolina Thread Trail map

Dec. 27. The Carolina Thread Trail has a new interactive online trail map, with nearly 500 miles of publicly accessible trails and greenways, not to mention river trails for paddling.

The redesigned website has information about free recreation opportunities across 15 counties in the Greater Charlotte region filtered by location, type of activity, difficulty and ADA accessibility.

Built-in tracker

Users who create a profile on the website can also track their accomplishments and earn nifty digital badges.

As new trails within the Thread Trail open, they will be added to the site.

More than 300 miles of Thread Trail are open to the public. For more information, visit www.carolinathreadtrail.org.
