“Forney Creek Trail is a 3.3-mile natural surface trail that meanders along Forney Creek.”— Carolina Thread Trail
The trail goes through a 310-acre Forney Creek Conservation Area that is protected by Catawba Lands Conservancy and the North Carolina Clean Water Management Trust Fund. The northern trail will take you past two waterfowl impoundments once used by the Catawba Springs Hunt Club. There is a short spur trail at the northern end which takes visitors out to an observation deck.
Parking is available at Sally's YMCA (1601 Forney Creek Parkway, Denver, NC 28037).
