Description

The trail is located near Concord Mills and connects the Weddington Road Dog Park and Fire Station 11 with Embassy Suites and the Riverwalk neighborhood. The 2.6-mile paved trail follows the Rocky River,and provides a safe walking and biking path along Weddington Road. From the dog park, it heads east along the Rocky River to Riverwalk subdivision. Additionally, you can head out to Weddington Road and take the greenway to shops and the Embassy Suites hotel. The greenway is marked by flags and painted stencils and provides access to shopping areas and restaurants.

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 Henry Greenway will be established alongside the Rocky River. This area along the Rocky River is considered part of the "spine" of the footprint of the Carolina Thread Trail and will ultimately connect Iredell, Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Stanly and Anson counties. The segment in Concord will pass a number of destination points, including local public schools, Concord-Padgett Regional AirportConcord MillsConcord Convention CenterRocky River Golf CoursezMAX Dragway and Charlotte Motor Speedway.
