Discover your inner Naturalist on this nature-focused, group walk along 4-miles of the South Fork Trail, part of the Carolina Thread Trail Network. Follow the Director of the Carolina Thread Trail Andy Kane as he leads you along this beautiful natural surface trail adjacent to the South Fork of the Catawba River.  The group will stop frequently to take notice of the beautiful flora and fauna present in the 94-acres of land, protected by Catawba Lands Conservancy, upon which this trail sits.

Suitable for ages 10 and above.  The group will succeed in exercising during this walk but the primary focus will be on taking time to notice nature.
