About WALC

Wandering Around Lincoln County (WALC)  is passionate about weaving the beauty of Lincoln County's people, places and communities together.  In collaboration with Catawba Lands Conservancy and Carolina Thread Trail, our mission is to further the progress of land conservancy & the building of a network of trails, greenways & blue ways to connect communities, parks and historic & recreational areas in Lincoln County.


Established in 2010, WALC brought together a group of impassioned residents and business people committed to helping bring the missions of the Carolina Thread Trail and Catawba Lands Conservancy to life in Lincoln County.  Since its inception, WALC has been instrumental in the completion of 10.4 miles of trails in Lincoln County with miles more planned thanks to the tireless efforts of its volunteers and collaboration with government and private sectors.
