I asked for an update and just received this word: "As of right now the trail is completely open. There was some flooding around Sandy Creek earlier this week, which has been cleaned up." playdanvilleva@danvilleva.gov

Black Creek Greenway

Detours and upgrades

January, 2023 by jchris850

Town of Cary is relocating this greenway north of Dynasty Drive to eliminate a streetside stretch. When I walked it in December, there was a longer streetside detour following Dynasty in the opposite direction, then returning via Cary Parkway to the trailhead on that street. There is also ongoing sewer reconstruction that may require streetside detours between Dynasty and Lake Crabtree.

Easy, flat trail for enjoyable run or endurance training. Start at Rock Quarry Park on Stadium Drive and run to Trinity Avenue and back for a solid 5 miles. Enjoy.

Fan Branch Trail

Over all, well kept and tidy trail.Only concerns were the wooden incline bridge needs a few planks replaced because of decay. Also no curb along trail at highway underpass. Other than that easy going for power wheelchairs.
