White Oak Creek Greenway

High quality trail with no road crossings!

January, 2021 by cchanke

I recently road the White Oak Greenway trail for the first time, starting from the American Tobacco Trail. The trail is wide with a high quality surface, varying between asphalt, concrete, and wood/trex causeways through wetlands. Since the trail is often adjacent or over wetlands, it is very scenic and peaceful, even though you are in the middle of a large suburban residential developments. I was also happy to find that there were absolutely no road crossings, so the trail is as safe as it gets!

Clayton River Walk

Beautiful scenic Trail

December, 2020 by dawnrbarnett

This is my favorite trail because it connects to so many others. You meander along the Neuse River, while enjoying transitions into open fields, woodlands, and some boulder areas. It’s medium and difficulty with some uphill travel, which is always treated with a downhill ride. However it is mostly flat. Too many great spots for photo shoots to share!

Cape Fear River Trail

Favorite running spot

December, 2020 by philip.christine.bacon

I love running here. There is plenty of shade, a decent amount of small rolling hills, beautiful scenery, and never too crowded. I come here to get lost in my thoughts for my long runs.

Neuse River Trail

awesome trail

November, 2020 by merkey

Visiting the area and discovered this trail. What a fantastic trail this is. Scenic, safe, great condition people using it were friendly and it was not crowded. Can’t wait to ride it again when I am back in the area

Walnut Creek Trail

great trail

November, 2020 by merkey

Very nice scenery. Mostly flat with some nice little hills at Johnson Lake. Thoroughly enjoyed the ride! Hope to be in the area again sometime to ride it again.

Symphony Lake Greenway

Nice Trail

November, 2020 by mary.waligora

This is a very nice trail; a loop with a tail. Asphalt throughout and fairly popular. You have to make sure there isn't an event at the amphitheater though; the gates will then be closed and you will have to turn around (you can't go around the gates really either).

Annie Jones Greenway

A nice, short, three-branched trail

November, 2020 by mary.waligora

A nice three-branched trail; mostly paved asphalt, with some concrete northwest of Annie Jones park. There is a nice bridge at one point.

Nick's Creek Trail

Quiet trail

November, 2020 by screliefvet

Several of the trails in the Moore Parks system are close by my work and this is one of my favorites. The trail is peaceful and nowhere near as busy as the nearby Reservoir park. I have even seen deer and other wildlife as I stroll down it’s length. It’s a dirt path but well maintained. I am not a confident runner, but I will run on this trail because of the good footing. It connects to the Forest Creek trail at the upper end, so although it is not a long trail, you can continue on for miles. There aren’t any of the amenities that the Reservoir park offers, but I like that it’s out of the way. Check it out and enjoy!

Dunn-Erwin Rail-Trail

great family bike ride!

September, 2020 by merrimanmarketing

We had a great family bike ride: 4 adults and three kids, started at the Dunn end of the trail and rode to Erwin and back. The section in downtown Erwin is nicely incorporated into a block of downtown that included an excellent bakery. Great cookies to fuel the ride back to the car. Trail is pretty flat, long low grades. Surface is compacted gravel. There are some roads to cross so we had to keep close to the kids. Enjoy

Neuse River Trail

So Lucky To Have This As My "Home" Trail

August, 2020 by warrenkurtzman

I really got into biking a few months back and have already come to realize how fortunate I am to live less than ten minutes from this trail. It has become my go-to place for riding, as I usually hit it two or three mornings each week and then go for a longer ride on it once almost every weekend.

Thus far I have ridden about 20 of the northernmost miles of the trail; I park near the trailhead by Falls Lake and head south from there before turning around and heading back. One of the things I've really come to appreciate about this trail is that it has virtually no street crossings. The only one I've hit is at Anderson Point Park, and even there you only have to cross the entrance to a seldom-used parking area.

The Neuse River Greenway Trail is beautiful and features numerous scenic crossings back and forth across the river. It is well-maintained, clearly-marked (with mileage markers every quarter-mile) and offers many areas to stop and rest, including some with restroom facilities. It can get a little busy at certain points on the weekends, but users are generally friendly and courteous and I've never found it too crowded to ride at the pace I want.

An added benefit is that the trail offers connections to numerous other trails that are part of Raleigh's excellent and frequently-expanding greenway system, including the Walnut Creek, Crabtree Creek and Abbotts Creek Trail. Once I reach my goal of riding all 27.5 miles of it, I look forwarding the exploring these connected trails.

Cape Fear River Trail

Paved and scenic

August, 2020 by barrett_homer

I biked this trail this morning Aug 9. I was pleasantly surprised to find most of the trail was shaded and paved. Bikers, joggers, and hikers all seemed friendly and cordial toward each other. North to south is slightly more downhill than traveling north. One hill coming back is a bit of a booger, but a great enjoyable ride nonetheless.
