    Calm on the York County Riverwalk

    by etfromnc Written Oct 1, 2010

    On Thursday, July 1, Rock Hill and nearby residents were invited to the grand opening of the Riverwalk Trail in York County. In a morning celebration hosted by the City of Rock Hill and the Riverwalk development company, city officials cut the official ribbon to welcome assembled cyclists, walkers and families to enjoy 2.25 miles of trail open to the public for the first time. (The Riverwalk is not a loop, so if you plan to see the entire trail, be prepared to walk 4.5 miles.) The 10-foot paved multi-use trail is the first newly constructed segment of the Carolina Thread Trail to be unveiled in the region. In the first two months after its opening, more than 9,000 visitors enjoyed the trails.
    The Carolina Thread Trail is a very ambitious plan to celebrate the time when cotton, and textile manufacuring, were king in the Piedmont region of the Carolinas. It is planned to connect greenways, waterways, and other significant points in 15 Carolina counties.
