Rock Hill’s New Riverwalk Trail Is Now Open To All Visitors. The 2.25 mile Riverwalk Trail along the Catawba River started allowing walkers, cyclist and even skaters on July 1st 2010. Sorry but skateboarders are unwelcome.
To access the trail from Hwy 21/Cherry Road headed toward Fort Mill, turn right onto Dunkin’s Ferry Road, shortly before the Hwy. 21 bridge.
Turn left onto Terrace Park and continue to the trail’s parking lot by the trailhead. The Riverwalk Trail is part of the City of Rock Hill’s Trails and Green-ways System as well as the Carolina Thread Trail, a regional network of trails and greenways spanning 15 counties and connecting over two million people.
With a kayaking and canoe -launch, the RIVER DISTRICT will be a place for families, novices and clubs to enjoy fun and adventure on the cool river waters. The scenery is spectacular and nature abounds.
The Riverwalk is the planned 1,000 acre residential, commercial and retail community to be developed along the Catawba River, bordered by Cherry Rd/ Hwy 21 and Cel-River Road. Approximately 250 acres will be devoted to public recreation amenities including river access, additional trails, athletic fields, parks, gardens, a climbing wall, and a variety of cycling venues.
The trail is open 8 am to 8 pm April through September and 8 am to 6 pm October through March. The trail is handicapped accessible although the first part of the train is gravel.
