hike Twin Trestle Trail in North Carolina

Now that you’re a proud new owner of a reliable, capable, and fun, Mitsubishi, it’s time to mituplan some road trips. After all, there’s no better way to get to know your new car than taking it along for a day trip with family or friends. Pack a picnic, put on your hiking boots, and get together your hiking companions for a drive out to the Twin Trestle Trail.

The Twin Trestle Trailhead is just about an hour away from Charlotte, North Carolina. At just over three miles both ways, it’s a short enough hike to enjoy on a casual day trip, and even works well with kids if they’re adventurous. It’s a good trail for a wide range of skill levels, and is open all year. Twin Trestle Trail is also dog-friendly, as long as your pet is on a leash.

This particular hike in North Carolina gets its name from the trestles left behind from the Norfolk Southern Railroad. The trail follows the path of a river, and architectural trestles remain from where the railroad bridge crossed the river. The structures are interesting and beautiful, and the hike itself crosses some fun paths like a swinging suspension bridge. Twin Trestle Trail is a great place to enjoy birdwatching, or to spot wildlife, so plan to enjoy a leisurely stroll on this gorgeous North Carolina hike.
