Description

Needle is the new Carolina Thread Loop inbound return trail. This trail is singletrack and begins at the end of Carolina Thread trail near Belmeade. It runs parallel to Carolina Thread and sometimes within a few feet at certain spots along the way. This trail has some fun ups and downs and some mountain bike features with a different feel than its outbound counterpart. Overall, it is a nice addition to the trail system.
