The Catawba and Northern Trail

Historical Background



Counties on the Catawba and Northern Trail.[1]

Connecting trails. The Catawba and Northern Trail forks off north from the Lower Cherokee Traders' Path in York County, South Carolina. The Catawba and Northern Trail heads due north to the Yadkin River settlements (North Carolina) where it joins the New River and Southern Trail in Wilkes County.

Settlers and Records

No lists of settlers who used the Catawba and Northern Trail are known to exist. However, local and county histories along the road may reveal that many of the first pioneer settlers arrived from places to the northeast along the route.
