There are three trails on the reservation, but only one of the trails is part of the Carolina Thread Trail. Catawba Nation Greenway Trail begins at the trailhead behind the Catawba Indian Nation Reservation and Cultural Center, where it is called the Cultural Trail or the Yehasuri Trail. The trail then heads down to the Catawba River for about 0.6 miles, and there is educational signage about the Catawba Indian Nation on this segment of trail, as well as a Catawba dwelling, bark house, dugout trees, story circle, and archeological dig.
Once you reach the Catawba River, take a left to continue on the Catawba Nation Greenway Trail. This 1.6-mile segment of the Carolina Thread Trail follows the river and features two bridges, benches, and a small hand carry boat launch. After 1.6-miles, turn off on to the Loop Trail towards the Government Center for 0.3 miles, where the Catawba Nation Greenway Trail ends.
