This grrreat hike on a 2 mile trail that follows along the South Fork of the Catawba River, and passes through the Pharr Yarns Preserve. For pups and humans yearning for an easy, peaceful and picturesque hike in the woods, this is pawrfect! The trail starts in Lowell and ends in McAdenville, a mere 12 miles from downtown Charlotte. The constant murmuring of the river, bird sounds from above and greenery all around will call you and your fur-baby back again and again!
About 14 miles south of Charlotte in Fort Mill, SC, sits the Lake Haigler Nature Walk at Anne Springs Close Greenway, pupular with leashed canines and their humans. Skirting the lake, the trail's natural surface and lush foliage are just what the vet ordered! Tulip Poplar trees and Christmas Ferns line the path, and hickories near the trail's end feed the abundant squirrels. Fido will have a ball sniffing out the small critters! An extra treat could be a dip in the lake - pawsome!
