Joseph McDowell Historical Catawba Greenway
A gentle walk along the Catawba River
Difficulty Level: Stroll in the park (See map below)
These are trails or greenways that are paved or surfaced to make walking comfortable. Usually flat. Most of the time they are located close to parking and other conveniences. Bring the whole family and enjoy nature.
comfortable walking shoes or tennis shoes are fine for this trail.
Time: Expect to spend from 1.5 to 2 hours on the greenway if you walk to the end and back.
Safety: There is an occasional snake that crosses the path in the summer. Just leave them alone. Water is always a good idea.
THE TRAIL: It’s a flat, paved walkway to the end. Take someone with you or walk alone and enjoy the peaceful river that runs along the pathway. About halfway in you will see the trail to Round Hill. It’s a short loop trail around the base of the hill. Worth the extra time.
FACILITIES: There is a port-o-potty at both parking areas.
