If you have come to Cramerton to get away from it all, you are almost there. There is a 1.2 mile loop of the Riverside Greenway which winds along the banks of the South Fork
River. The land for this greenway, which is part of the Carolina Thread Trail was donated by Burlington Industries in 1993. Running north, the Riverside Greenway begins at the intersection of Riverside Drive and Cramer Mountain Road in one of the oldest sections of Cramerton. Locals refer to this area of Cramerton. as “Old Town.” Along the paved, urban trail, visitors may encounter wildlife such as wood ducks and beavers. There are also many river overlooks, canoe portages, a picnic shelter, restroom, and a basketball court. The trail is ADA compliant and ends at the Southern Railroad overpass where hikers can make the loop and walk back to the trailhead.
Dogs are allowed as long as they are on a leash and this is a free facility.
The trail is asphalt paved and walking, jogging, bicycling, paddling (in the South Fork)and fishing are permitted activities. The trail is pretty level and not likely to be too challenging for most people.
