a number of parks and trails as well as a charming downtown with food and retail. Recently, we visited the Catawba River Greenway, which offers a nice combination of all of the above.
The paved Catawba River Greenway is 1.2 miles and runs from Tuckaseege Park at the south end to the Mount Holly Municipal Complex at the north.
For the most part, the greenway borders natural areas, though it does make its way behind and between some industrial buildings at points. Also, getting to town requires you to cross a couple of pretty busy streets, but there are ways to do it safely.
How to get there:
You can find parking for the Catawba River Greenway at Tuckaseege Park, located at 165 Broome St., Mount Holly, NC, 28120, or the Mount Holly Municipal Complex, located at 400 E. Central Ave., Mount Holly, NC 28120.
Don't forget to pack:
- Comfortable walking shoes
- Bikes, skates, scooters and helmets
- Water and snacks
- Hats, sunglasses and sunscreen
- Fishing gear (you can throw a line in along the river)
