Trailhead Location: MAP
The Moss Creek section of this developing 14-mile Hector H. Henry, II Greenway is a perfect place to walk, run or bike. The trail is a peaceful paved surface trail that connects the local neighborhoods with the elementary and middle school. The 1.5-mile trail crosses a wetland and features educational signage along the way. These kiosks are a great way to learn about wetland ecology that the greenway resides. There is also an observation deck that looks out over a pond and provides an ideal viewing point for birds and wildlife.
This segment of greenway will be part of the City of Concord's longest greenway project and is named in honor of Council Member Hector H. Henry II. This Hector H. Henry, II Greenway will be established alongside the Rocky River. This area along the Rocky River is considered part of the "spine" of the eastern footprint of the Carolina Thread Trail and will ultimately connecting Iredell, Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Stanly and Anson counties. The segment in Concord will pass a number of destination points, including local public schools, Concord Regional Airport, Concord Mills, Concord Convention Center, Rocky River Golf Course, zMAX Dragway and Charlotte Motor Speedway.
