Our Greenways & Trails
Along with the Parks and Facilities that the City maintains, we also provide access to greenway trails and mountain bike trails.
The 1.2-mile greenway trail that connects Tuckaseege Park to the Mount Holly Municipal Complex is a paved trail that takes visitors along the picturesque Catawba River.
Mountain Island Park at Mount Holly is home to a 1.6-mile natural surface trail that meanders through the woods and is home to many types of wildlife. This trail starts at the parking lot below the dam and continues into the woods.
Future greenway connections may take the trail from Tuckaseege Park through River Street Park and all the way to Mountain Island Park at Mount Holly.
Mountain Island Park at Mount Holly is also home to two miles of fun and exciting mountain bike trails. The mountain bike trails were built and are maintained by the Tarheel Trailblazers. The trail has many curves and jumps and is sure to be enjoyed by mountain bikers of all levels.
