Description

Twelve Mile Creek Trail stretches along Twelve Mile Creek for nearly 3.5 miles and travels through Walnut Creek neighborhood to the South Carolina/North Carolina state line, where a 170-foot suspension bridge spans the creek. Twelve Mile Creek Trail then connects to the Twelve Mile Creek Greenway in Waxhaw, N.C. After crossing over the Twelve Mile Creek suspension bridge, the trail turns into Twelve Mile Creek Greenway in Waxhaw, NC. This 0.7-mile natural surface trail twists and turns before opening up on Millbridge Parkway within the Millbridge housing development. The trail then becomes a paved greenway winding through the Prescot neighborhood and into Town Creek Park.

Parking is available at the southern trailhead in Walnut Creek Park (10521 Walnut Creek Parkway, Lancaster, SC 29720) and at the northern trailhead in HC Nesbit Park (1304 H.C. Nesbit Park Road, Waxhaw, NC 28173).
