The paved, scenic Baker's Creek Greenway follows its eponymous creek, connecting two parks in central North Carolina's Kannapolis. The trail is part of the Carolina Thread Trail, a network of pathways across 15 counties in North and South Carolina.
At its southern end, Village Park offers a playground, covered shelters and a splash pad. Nearby, you'll also find the Cannon Memorial YMCA, offering other recreational amenities. The trail ends in Baker's Creek Park, which has restrooms, picnic areas, basketball and tennis courts, a playground and a miniature golf course. Here, at West A Street, you can continue your journey on the half-mile 8th Street Greenway
to North Loop Road.
Parking is available at the southern end of the trail in Village Park (700 West C Street) and the Cannon Memorial YMCA (101 YMCA Drive). At its northern end, Bakers Creek Park (1275 West A Street) offers a gated parking lot that is only open during park hours; see the park's web page
