“Hickory Greenway is a 1.2-mile paved surface trail with boardwalks and a sidewalk connection.”— Carolina Thread Trail
From there, you'll walk on boardwalks across a cove of Lake Hickory - a great area to look for wildlife. The trail ends at a grassy area in the park, where you can also find playgrounds, a memorial garden, many picnic areas, and other nice amenities.
Parking is available at the trailhead at Jaycee Park and Hickory City Park (1515 12th Street NW Dr. Hickory, NC 28601). Additional parking is also available at Glenn C. Hilton, Jr. Memorial Park (2000 6th St NW, Hickory, NC 28601).
