The name, Carolina Thread Trail, is rooted in a region with a rich heritage of weaving fabric. This intricate network of trails is weaving together people, communities and nature into a tapestry that connects Carolinians for generations to come.
The logo was inspired by one of the oldest, traditional quilt patterns, the Eight-Pointed Star. In quilts, a variety of shaped and colored fabrics come together to form a vibrant and harmonious whole—the individual pieces held together simply by thread. Additionally, this compass-like symbol, with North and South accentuated to represent both Carolinas, is symbolic of adventure and exploration.
