“A nice little flat trail along the the Catawba River.”— Michelle Martus
There are many bridges and river overlook spots that provide great places to watch for wildlife.
The Landsford Canal State Park is home to the largest known population of Rocky Shoals Spider Lilies. The Rocky Shoals Spider Lilly is named for its preferred habitat, the rocky outcroppings along riverbanks, and the plants produce fragrant white blooms in May and June. Because most of the trail is within 10 feet of the water, trail visitors will be delighted by spectacular views of the lilies and river fauna. The best place to view lilies is from the observation deck located at the end of the trail.
Parking is available at 2051 Park Drive in Catawba, SC 29704.
