Walt Schrader Trails

About the Trails

Located in a 800-acre natural area, this 7 mile network of backcountry paths crosses land steeped in local history and tradition. Native Americans, as well as African and European Americans, share the rich cultural heritage of the Carolina Piedmont. Travel through fields and woodlands that have provided resources for food and shelter for thousands of years. Along with history, you’ll discover the geographical diversity of the Carolina Piedmont as you walk or ride through forests, wetland, and prairie, each with its own distinctive plants and wildlife.


Currently, 6 miles of trail network are closed for maintenance. Visitors can still walk the Nature Trail and the Huck’s Defeat Battlefield Trail, however horseback riding and cycling are prohibited until repairs can be completed.
