By now, most of us have heard about the Carolina Thread Trail, the proposed network of 400 miles of trails knitting together 15 counties in North and South Carolina.
Gaston County, N.C., and York County won $50,000 grants for planning and design. Their work will be pilot programs for the overall trail plan.
On Wednesday, about 30 people met at Manchester Meadows for a public meeting about the trail. The primary goals of the meeting were to inform the public about the trails network and to get public input and ideas.
