Sellers Falls Now Open! Newest Section of Haw River Trail

Sellers Falls Now Open! Newest Section of Haw River Trail

We invite you to visit Sellers Falls, the newest section of the Haw River Trail/Mountains-to-Sea Trail. This 4-mile stretch of HRT/MST connects the Glencoe Section at Stoney Creek Marina to Red Slide Park, meandering through mature hardwood forest with prominent views of the Haw River. It adds the finishing touch to a total of 8 miles of contiguous trail from Glencoe south to Red Slide.

This section of trail was built with the help of more than 100 volunteers with the Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, who put in over 2,000 hours clearing, leveling, situating stepping stones, and constructing six bridges (three of which are more than 20 feet!). We thank the Friends for their commitment to the HRT/MST.

You can access this section of trail from Stoney Creek Marina, located at 1785 Faulkner Dr., Burlington, NC 27217. From the Stoney Creek Marina trailhead, walk Faulkner Dr. to Carolina Rd. and follow the blazes to reach the trail. The trail blazes are blue diamonds with the HRT logo and white circles for the MST. The crossing over Boyd’s Creek is a stepping stone footpath- if the water is high please use caution or turn around. Click here for a PDF map of the Sellers Falls Section. Paper maps are available at the trailhead.

*Please note that the crossing over the Haw River at Hwy 70 is not approved for pedestrian use at this time. Please refer to the map.
