This trail is beautiful and clearly marked follows The Neuse river¿¿

Riverwalk Greenway

Very nice trail with almost no issues end to end.When entering bridge a far end near race track. A challenging bump up onto bridge.

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.

Greenway Trail

Very bumpy trail and Zi don’t recommend for biking as it has stairs to climb on the South end. Great walking path, beautiful scenery.

Black Creek Greenway

mixed experience

September, 2022 by shilla7461

Drove from north Raleigh to bike this trail and was somewhat disappointed. Sure there were nice parts… the lake view, shaded ride through the wooded areas along the creek/river. However, as another person stated, the trail was not well marked in some areas, you cross several busy roads and the detour was confusing and basically a ride through a neighborhood.

Neuse River Trail

love the trail.

Paved and shaded trail. Perfect for my training runs. Only thing is I have to drive 45 minutes to get here and by the time I get here I have to use the restroom. No port-a-potty in sight.

American Tobacco Trail

American tobacco trail

Mostly paved and few road crossing until you get into Durham. Tough to follow after that

Morgan Creek Trail

nice & short trail

August, 2022 by alexnladan

very pretty creek and wide lanes to walk in with my dog and still have lots of room

Neuse River Trail

Great Trail for those Hot Days

July, 2022 by sandymo

If you have to ride at 100°, might as well be this trail. It’s pretty shady so if you’re cruising along it’s pretty nice. It’s probably not a beach cruiser trail as there are some inclines, not much to speak of, but probably more than you’d want on a single speed bike. Anyway, we left from Anderson Point Park and did 35 miles round trip to what I think is the northern end and back. The paved trail is in nice shape. Keep an eye out on the blind curves as we saw a couple of cyclists cut the corners a bit tight.

Buffalo Creek Greenway (Neuse Riverwalk)

Trail still closed about a mile down but nice and shady. Bathrooms at playground at Community Center entrance.
