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.

Salem Lake Trail

Fabulous Trail

September, 2022 by juliehdockery

This is great 7 mile loop around beautiful Salem Lake. The trail is wide and generally well maintained. It’s crushed gravel or hard packed dirt and has a couple of spots where it rutted out a bit. But I ride it often and so do many other cyclists, runners, walkers, moms pushing strollers. So it’s not really a problem. Lots of wildlife to be seen; herons, deer, turtles. Drinking water is available at a couple of points on the loop and there are plenty of benches if you need a rest. Don’t forget to take your camera on this one!!

Muddy Creek Greenway

Accessible to mobility scooter users

September, 2022 by patbirdtalk

This is superb for those needing mobility assistance. Looking for new trails that we, lifetime hikers, can use now we are in our seventies and one of us is mobility challenged, has become a new pastime. Muddy Creek is excellent!

Antiquity Greenway

easy quiet walk

August, 2022 by jimrobin1205

It was a very nice, easy walk. Asphalt path was clean, well kept and wide following a power line right of way. Slight decline one way and incline on the way back. Not strenuous though but I did break a slight sweat. No shade at all. We walked on a cloudy afternoon 5:00 pm 83 degrees and it was nice. If it had been sunny and hotter it would not have been enjoyable at all. Some bug spray would have been good. Had some knats. Saw some bunnies and birds.

Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

The bumps are being worked on. Thankfully we chose to use our gravel bikes. Beautiful waterside sectionsDon't skip the National Military Park.

Latham Park Greenway

Short and sweet

February, 2022 by jimmy4

For such a short trail, this one is enjoyable. The trail is all concrete and has a few hills, especially going under the roadway. With a skate park and ball fields along one side and a creek along the other, this is a nice neighborhood trail. I visited the trail in mid February with temps in the low 50s, and the trail was well used. Park at the skate park.
