Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

be careful of traffic and dog poop

April, 2021 by thaddeusstewart728

Overall great trail . But trail is cut in between three busy intersections with plenty of cars so you have to be really careful . Also beware of dog poop among the trail. Some dog owners aren’t cleaning up after themselves .

American Tobacco Trail

20 mile round trip ride today

April, 2021 by bethrathbone1

First time on the ATT. Parked at the New Hill Olive Chapel Road access. So many nice features to this trail. This area is fortunate to have such a lovely trail! Don't hesitate to try it!!

American Tobacco Trail

ATT Roundtrip from Durham

March, 2021 by sweigand_tl

I roundtripped this entire trail in 1 day (44 miles, 4.5 hours, average speed just under 10mph), starting in Durham. Parked in the free lot under the freeway. Unfortunately I noticed a homeless camp there right away. The first 5 or so miles had several homeless camps along the side of the trail; lots of garbage; a security call phone. The next few miles of the trail are currently detoured because of nearby road constructions. Some of the signage along the detour could be improved. I found myself stopping often to look around to see where I was supposed to go next. There are multiple road crossings along the way - stop and be careful crossing the roads; the oncoming cars do not stop for bikers! There are also lots of new homes being constructed along the way as well. The northern end is paved. The southern end finally turns into a nice pleasant ride through the woods (it is fenced-off hunting lands) on a crushed-stone bed. The southern end has large parking areas and restrooms. I was hoping to see more history along the trail, but literally only passed 2 old falling-down tobacco barns along the way. It looks like a great trail (especially the southern end) for locals to jump on for a quick ride or jog, but not something that I as a visitor to the area would ever want or need to ride again.

Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

Too rough for cycling

March, 2021 by mbrooke80

My husband and I love rails to trails cycling. The path here is so rough where roots have grown through and busted the pavement it’s almost impossible to ride in places. We’ll not be going back.

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!

Indian Creek Greenway

Pleasant level walk

January, 2021 by tjcawley

The Indian Creek Greenway is a pleasant, level, paved walk wide enough for both bikes and pedestrians. The trailhead has a handicapped accessible, fenced playground, two shelters with picnic tables and a restroom building. The newly constructed (Fall 2020) stormwater control measure is a large landscaped water feature along the greenway.
The western end safely crosses McCrimmon Parkway and connects to the Shiloh Greenway providing access to Church Street Park which has tennis courts, restrooms, playground, outdoor fitness equipment, and the highest quality cricket pitch in the region.
See you on the trail,

Rocky Branch Trail (NC)

Great trail for a scenic cruise.

January, 2021 by bnicholsii

Was staying downtown Raleigh and wanted to find a nice place to run. This was it. Very nice trail through the campus of NC State. Was easy to get to and the scenery and trail is very enjoyable.

Wakefield Trail

Except for section from London Bell to Wakefield Plantation, this trail was disappointing. There is no entrance at Dunford so detoured by sidewalks, and the section north to Old Falls of Neuse was closed. Short trail got much shorter.
