Greenways & Trails

Mountain island park-pictureAlong with the Parks and Facilities that the City maintains, we also provide access to greenway trails and mountain bike trails. The name of our greenway system is the Mount Holly River Hawk Greenway.

The 1.2-mile greenway segment that connects Tuckaseege Park to the Mount Holly Municipal Complex, is the A&E Riverfront Trail, it is a paved trail that takes visitors along the picturesque mighty Catawba River.

Mountain Island Park Trail is 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 at Mountain Island Park at Mount Holly and continues into the woods. This trail is currently closed.

The most recently opened trail is the Dutchman’s Creek Trail. This trail starts at River Street Park, and continues along Dutchman’s Creek crossing over Hwy. 27 and continues to the Mount Holly Municipal Complex. This trail has both paved and natural surface sections.

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 over three 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.
