About the Trail
The Piedmont Medical Center Trail, located in the Riverwalk community, offers scenic views of the Catawba River and is a great location for outdoor activities. The trail is 10 ft. wide, and it is 2 1/2 miles long and connects to Cherry Road/Hwy 21 at it's north end. To the south, it ends near the Norfolk Southern train trestle. (Note: The trail does not form a loop.)
The trail features flat areas as well as uphill and downhill stretches with steep grades. Along the trail are benches, garbage cans, pet stations, and bridges. Restrooms are located at the parking lot. The trail is located in a flood plain and is subject to flooding. Use caution during and after periods of heavy precipitation.
An addition to the trail is a connector that connects the Piedmont Medical Center Trail to the River Park Trail which allows miles of beautiful wilderness enjoyment. Beginning at Highway 21 to the lower parking lot of River Park, there is 3.35 miles of trail to enjoy. Remember the total mileage provided is only one way, so make sure to have a plan if you don't plan to walk the whole trail.
