High Point Greenway Trail

great trail

July, 2024 by crnjakalex

Close to me, beautiful trail, shade is great in the summer.

Eagle Spur Rail-Trail

Eagle Spur: A rail-trail by default rather than by design

June, 2024 by daveconnelly

The Eagle Spur is more of an abandoned rail corridor (1905-06) and less of a developed trail. Its scenic beauty is everywhere, with a canopy of trees and a payoff of seeing Jordan Lake up close. The surface is a forest floor, with fallen leaves, fallen trees, and unannounced places where the old railbed has given way. So it's wonderful for a walk in the woods, cautionary for runners' ankles, and injury-risking for inattentive mountain bikers. If you attempt this path during hunting season, blaze orange is advised.

Forest Creek Trail

Sandy

May, 2024 by evada

*Way* too Sandy for my taste, even with a trail bike. Couldn't figure out which I disliked more: fishtailing when going downhill into sand or spinning out while trying to go uphill.

Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

Nice Local Trail

May, 2024 by tayyarahdavidson

We enjoyed the trail. We rode from Guilford Military Park in Greensboro to Burmill Park In summerfield. Lots of up and down hills but not too strenuous. Paved and well maintained. Nice resting stops along the way.

Deep River Rail Trail

Trailhead Coordinates

May, 2024 by urk4s79424

Seemed like the trailhead coordinates weren’t accurate. They brought me to someplace close to the trail but with no parking area. All the parking areas are on route 22 (around 35.7412891, -79.6828295). Not exactly a quiet walk. Seemed to be some kind of man made buzz most of the walk. Never could figure out where it was coming from. But the views of the river were great and I saw one of the biggest great blue herons I’ve ever seen.

Salem Lake Trail

Nice trail

May, 2024 by janskinj

Circumvent the Salem Lake in 7 miles. Small section is asphalt and majority is packed dirt/gravel. Several sections of erosions and tree debris along with horse droppings. However, more eroded sections have been repaired. Lots of rolling hills and 2 steeper climbs with hairpin turns. Tough bike riding on weekends due to Lake’s popularity. Great balance of sun and shade with welcome lake breezes. Plenty of parking. Option to mountain bike on Jesus Trail or at the Dojo. If erosion was non existent-this would be a 5 star trail especially week days. One of our area favorites

Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

bridge is out

April, 2024 by brian.laney8

The bridge crossing Lake Brandt 1/4 mile south of Strawberry Rd is blocked off. The detour is Battleground Rd to Bur-Mil park.

Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

Has Potential

March, 2024 by prial

We began our ride at the northern terminus and rode only about a mile and a quarter before we came to a bridge that was closed and had to turn around. We got back in the car and went to a trailhead further south that was only to be found in the heart of an apartment complex. We rode in circles not able to find the trail leading to where the opposite side of the bridge closure might be. So we got back in the car once more and found the southern terminus of the trail and tried again. It was a better start with a stop at the Guildford Courthouse National Military Site (part of the National Park Service) where we could ride along the battleground car/bike tour road. Generally, the trail is not well signed and at points it is a shared sidewalk along busy roads. Coming from the cold of the north, we were looking to begin our bike season in a warmer March climate. The trail sections of this ride would be beautiful come April - September. This was a very hard-won 16.5 mile ride.

Bakers Creek Greenway

Great stroll

March, 2024 by ladyleslie1981

Great trail but could get confusing when it connects to other trails. Overall great experience and environment!

Irish Buffalo Creek Greenway

Very Nice!

February, 2024 by britneelong06

Me and my husband bring our kids here a lot. The trail is nice and is paved for most of it. It’s very easy to walk for little ones and easy to roll a stroller. We will continue come because it has a little bit of everything.

Buffalo Creek Preserve Trail

Not Kid Friendly

February, 2024 by britneelong06

It definitely is not kid friendly. There are too many roots, holes, and giant rocks to use a stroller and my 5 year old kept tripping over it all we didn’t make it a very far before we had to turn around. We will come back just not with the little ones.

Salem Lake Trail

Needs repairs

February, 2024 by deb.calhoun5

We usually ride this multiple times a week. Went last week and boy does it need some work all around the lake. Lots of wash outs and gullies that make it difficult to ride.
