RedSlideatSunsetThe Haw River Trail is a 70-mile long multi-use trail following the path of the Haw River from Haw River State Park to Jordan Lake State Recreation Area. For over half of that stretch, the Haw River Trail will combine with the statewide Mountains to Sea Trail.

Alamance County is one of 12 state and local governments that make up the Haw River Trail Partnership. Together we are working to build a regional trail that will benefit the environment, people and economy of our region.

Currently, approximately 18 miles of land trail are complete, as well as four recreational parks. The opening of the Sellers Falls section in 2016 added 4 new miles of trail and marked the completion of 8 continuous miles of trail from Indian Valley down to Red Slide Park. You can also enjoy hiking in the Swepsonville River Park area, Saxapahaw, or Shallow Ford Natural Area. For up to date information, maps and directions visit
