To access the trailhead park at the nearby H.C. Nesbitt Park, a sports complex behind the Kensington Elementary School. At the end of the paved drive there is a gravel drive that leads to a turn around. Park here and walk the gravel over the bridge and straight through until you come out between 2 houses up to a paved road. Just across the road will be a sign for the Thread Trail trailhead. Address to the park: 1304 H C Nesbit Park Rd Waxhaw, NC 28173
