The Longmeadow Trailhead opened in early October 2017 and features nearly two miles of new trail along the river in Graham. The trail runs through The Challenge Golf Club and between the Sellars Falls section to the north and the Swepsonville River Park to the south (and will ultimately connect the two).
Why the name Longmeadow? A newspaper article published in the August 31, 1922 edition of The Alamance Gleaner references a Boy Scout Troop’s camping trip in the “Longmeadow forests, on Haw River, three miles east of Graham”. The name stuck and is still used to refer to this area.
