Third Fork Creek Trail

love it

July, 2021 by h.musa.ali

Don’t bike after a rainfall. It floods

American Tobacco Trail

Awesome

July, 2021 by h.musa.ali

Wonderful

White Oak Creek Greenway

it’s nice trail

July, 2021 by hakman1129

This trail has lots of smaller “sub-trails” which are also pretty nice to walk on if you don’t want to walk the full 7 mile trail.

White Oak Creek Greenway

well kept up trail.

July, 2021 by ray.brown_tl

Took a bike ride from David Drive to the American Tobacco trail and back. This trail is narrower than what I am used to in Connecticut but on those trails many go to fast, this was a more relaxing ride. Found the trail to be well taken care of and few people using it. On the return where the trail goes under highway 55 they could use signs for which trail goes in each direction. Most other intersections are marked.

Crabtree Creek Trail

Gorgeous!

July, 2021 by vickitaylor1

Beautiful trees and rolling hills. We Floridians loved it!

Mingo Creek Trail

Shady welcoming nature trail

June, 2021 by katrin.sullivan

This trail meanders through some pretty tree lined views, and wetlands. Nice people not too crowded and you get to entertain friendly wildlife that watch you walk by.

White Oak Creek Greenway

love this greenway

June, 2021 by dwanderson1983

Very fun to take small kids. Took my 7 year old and he really enjoyed it

American Tobacco Trail

Great Trail

June, 2021 by deborahdebmartin

This trail was fun up and over highway! Busy with bikers, walkers and runners on Sunday morning we rode.

Cape Fear River Trail

Blade in the Shade

June, 2021 by danielle.haase83

This trail rocks. Ample parking at both ends of the trail help kickoff any great adventure. Whatever wheels you bring will roll across this fluid surface of glass. Bountiful trees cover the trail a majority of the trip. Scenic vistas made way by boardwalk and bridges. Markers indicate how involved you are. A heed of caution on the descent from the Jordan Soccer Complex end for all you rollerbladers...it’s a bit steep for a couple hills.

Neuse River Trail

Great ride last week on the Neuse River Trail!

May, 2021 by jay1958

Started at Anderson Point in east Raleigh and rode south down past Battle Bridge Rd tunnel - which is pretty cool in itself - and then turned around, ate lunch back at Anderson Point and then rode north. So two out-and-backs from Anderson Point. Rode 27 miles in all.

Beaver Creek Greenway

Closed

May, 2021 by jon.gits5

Trail is currently closed at approximately the midpoint.

Neuse River Trail

GREAT Trail

May, 2021 by kelly.kathleen.duggan

Not a lot to see, it’s about 30 ft from the water with a tree line blocking the view, but it does have some great bridges and the paved trail is well kept
