Description

This paved trail is located in the vicinity of Concord Mills. The main trailhead is at the Weddington Road Dog Park and Fire Station 11. Heading along the Rocky River from there, the greenway reaches the Riverwalk neighborhood. Heading down the Weddington Road sidepath from the dog park, the trail reaches numerous business and ultimately Embassy Suites.

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 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 Airport, Concord Mills, Concord Convention Center, Rocky River Golf Course, zMAX Dragway and Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Expanding the Carolina Thread Trail in rural communities takes a different approach than in urban centers. Even though the Village of Misenheimer is tiny (only 650 residents as of the last census), they have an outsized commitment to building the Thread Trail.
