Description

The Downtown Waxhaw Greenway, part of the Carolina Thread Trail, travels through the middle of downtown Waxhaw using sidewalks, greenways, and an overstreet bridge. The greenway and sidewalk are wide, flat, and have paved surfaces suitable for all ages and strollers. The trail starts in downtown Waxhaw and follows an active railroad line through the heart of downtown. It then picks up a sidewalk along North Main Street heading out of downtown.

"No trip to Waxhaw is complete without a stroll across the historic overhead foot bridge. Once used by automobiles, the bridge is now designated for pedestrian traffic only. Adults and children alike enjoy standing on the bridge while one of Waxhaw's many trains passes beneath their feet. The bridge is flanked on both sides by large shade trees and benches, and is located in the heart of historic downtown Waxhaw."
