Moss Creek Village segment of the Hector H. Henry II Greenway, named for a long-time city council member, is part of the Carolina Thread Trail. It begins at Odell Elementary School and winds its way through peaceful wetlands, over boardwalks, and by a pond with a perfect perch for observing wildlife.
For those who live north of Charlotte, or others looking to cover new territory, the Hector H. Henry II Greenway is a pleasant, family-friendly destination.
How to get there: The trailhead is next to the Odell Elementary School parking lot, located at 1215 Moss Farm St. North West, Concord, NC, 28027. During school days most parking is reserved for school personnel, but there are a handful of spots, marked with painted lizards, designated for greenway parking.
Don't forget to pack:
- Comfortable walking shoes
- Bikes or other riding toys and helmets
- Water and snacks
