2017 Jim and Sandra Schmid bike 5-mile Catawba River Greenway – Morganton, NC

Morganton, NC is just an hour east of Black Mtn, NC where we live. I had heard about a paved trail along the river so we went to check it out. We ended up going back three times to The Catawba River Greenway. We found out a short leg is called the Freedom Trail Greenway. Both really nice to ride. At five miles it made for a good distance to bike with Sandra. Been awhile since she’s been out on her REI bike. And with all the trees and river nearby the summer weather was pleasant.

I like the town’s optimism with two trails they call it the Morganton Greenway System. Sure hope they can add more. We’ll be back.
