Trail Connector to River Park Opening Soon

Riverwalk residents and visitors can now enjoy connectivity to nearby River Park as part of an update to the Carolina Thread Trail system.

The Piedmont Medical Center Trail

Open daily from 8am–8pm, 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 feet wide and 2.25 miles long. (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.

Measuring 1,960 feet long x 10 feet wide, a multi-use asphalt trail will soon connect the existing Piedmont Medical Center Trail at Riverwalk to the River Park trail system. The project also includes a 136 foot long canopy under the Norfolk Southern Railroad trestle.


Trail Guidelines

The trail is a shared use trail allowing for walking, running and biking. Pets are allowed on a 3′ leash. The speed limit for bicycles is 10 mph. The trail is handicapped accessible and is monitored by park staff.

The Trail’s Future

The Piedmont Medical Center Trail is part of the City of Rock Hill’s Trails and Greenways System as well as the Carolina Thread Trail, a regional network of trails and greenways spanning 15 counties and connecting over two million people. The trail will eventually connect to other parts of the Riverwalk development.
