7 trails for fall colors within 50 minutes of Charlotte

(Reprinted from Charlotte Agenda)

By: Symphony Weber

Peak fall color is expected to happen around mid-October, so now’s the time to hit the trails, feel the fresh fall air, and enjoy nature’s beauty.

One of the many great things about living in Charlotte is that you can go from center city to practically off the grid in under an hour. Or stay in town and head to one of the greenways that weave through the city.

Many of these greenways and wooded paths are part of a regional trail network called the Carolina Thread Trail which will ultimately reach 15 counties throughout North and South Carolina. The CTT already has about 300 miles of trails with more 1,300 more miles to go. (You can help make that happen with a donation.)

Here are seven trails for optimal fall color-viewing within 50 minutes of Charlotte.
