Hinshaw Greenway

Great Family Trail

April, 2021 by roberts.l.nicole

We started at the Kids Together playground. We walked all the way down and back. We took a pit stop at MacDonald Woods Park on the way back which is right next to the trail. There were areas of incline and even terrain. My 8 and 10 year old had no difficulty with the inclines. was shaded the majority of the walk.

Tobacco Heritage Trail

Tobacco Heritage Roundtrip

April, 2021 by sweigand_tl

I roundtripped this trail in April ‘21 on a hybrid mountain bike. 35.5 miles, 3:40 time, 9.6mph average speed. The trail was well maintained - grass was cut, large fallen trees were removed, garbage containers were emptied, trail parking is plentiful at the several trailheads. The first few miles out of LaCrosse were paved, the rest is crushed gravel, softer sand, and dirt/grass. I saw only 2 other bikers all day (they were on e-bikes). There definitely is not a lot of use on the trail, there are no tunnels or really long trestles or bridges, and there is not much in terms of trailside amenities that I could tell (restaurants, bed and breakfasts, stores), but if you’re looking for a nice long ride in the woods with nobody else around, this is the trail for you. If it gets connected into a larger/longer trail system, and if that spurs some economic development along the way in terms of businesses catering to bikers and tourists, this current trail could be a great foundation for a future longer trail that could be a bucket-list type of ride.

American Tobacco Trail

great for beginners!

April, 2021 by mufasa394

This was our first trail ride in over 2 years and it was so much fun! Easy to get back into. We went from parking at the solite park up to the most northern point. A round trip of almost 14 miles and it was fantastic!

American Tobacco Trail

Back to back thru hike

April, 2021 by 8bk8mg57dr

I walked this trail in its entirety twice yesterday. I started at the southernmost point at the NewHill location and made my way to the northernmost point at the Durham Bulls Athletics Park and back. A total of 50+ miles and 14 hours later I can attest to the greatness of this trail. Long, flat with plenty of space, this trail did not disappoint . Beautiful views along the way with plenty of wildlife in the south opening up to a busy city landscape offered much diversity through the hike. I highly recommend!Ihighly recommended

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

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!
