"The Nation Ford Road has witnessed much history. As an original trading path of the Catawba Nation, it was the first step in building an infrastructure system that today features superhighways and international airports. Despite its humble beginnings, Nation Ford served the same purpose as later day roads and airports. It served to connect people to other places."
                                                   ..........Excerpt from The Nation Ford Road: Its History and Impact, by Louise Pettus

At a time when York County is facing unprecedented growth, the Nation Ford Land Trust and the Trust for Public Land began working together to develop a plan for preserving and linking open space within the area. The plan has evolved into
a 30-mile greenway around the Town of Fort Mill, bordering Sugar Creek and the Catawba River. It has been named the Nation Ford Greenway, in honor of the historic Nation Ford Trail that linked the area to regions both north and south over 200 years ago.

Picture of people hiking on the Nation Ford Greenway As envisioned, the Nation Ford Greenway will join together parks, conservation areas, neighborhoods, museums, historic sites, business centers, schools, and other places
of public interest. Additional benefits to the region from the Nation Ford Greenway will
be to provide residents with opportunities for physical activity (hiking, walking, running,
and bicycling) and to explore York County’s natural resources and history. The Nation
Ford Greenway will also protect areas adjacent to Sugar Creek and the Catawba River
from soil disturbance, thus enhancing water quality. Picture of a person biking on the Nation Ford Greenway


The Nation Ford Greenway will connect to the 2,300-acre Anne Springs Close Greenway in Fort Mill, and to the Mecklenburg County Greenway System at the Little Sugar Creek Greenway. A proposed pedestrian bridge across the Catawba River will provide a link to the Rock Hill parks system, and Tega Cay access to the Nation Ford Greenway will be available near the Lake Wylie Dam.
