Description [Suggest Changes]

The Carolina Thread trail is bidirectional trail, often used as an out and back ride. Speeds can average well over 10mph, so take caution to avoid riders traveling in the opposite direction. The trail has lots of natural berms and whoops and flows very well. It generally flows better and has slightly more downhill on the way back to Thread Loop than on the way out. The trail no longer ends at Figure 8 but shortly after the second entrance to Academy at the intersection with Thread Loop. The final 3/4 mile of the old trail that connects to Figure 8 is now part of Thread Loop.

The Carolina Thread trail connects to Belmeade Drive in the northeast and to Thread Loop and Academy in the southwest.
