This best-selling, pedestrian-centric village, is renowned for its miles of trails and over 500 acres of open space and parks.
The Baxter Village Trail system is nestled in a neighborhood of Fort Mill, which lies on the northern border of South Carolina (Charlotte, North Carolina, is just over the state line). The trails have mainly a natural surface and are moderately hilly. They wind through wooded areas, cross a few quiet residential streets, and offer views of small streams. A highlight of the Baxter Village River Trail is an observation deck overlooking the Catawba River.
