Eagle Spur Rail-Trail

Drove out there with the kids a couple weeks ago and we couldn't even access the trail because it was a pond.

Walnut Creek Trail

Walnut Creek Trail 2020

April, 2020 by rsjc1127

Rode the entire trail in 4/2/2020. I didn’t see any part of the trail that was crushed stone, though there is a section of wooden decking on the ground at one point. There is a detour at Worthdale Park to Sunnybrook Road, but the old detours closer to Lake Johnson are gone. The trail is hilly in spots, but the tunnels and boardwalks are fun. Lots of beaver activity and other wildlife. Anderson Point is only a short distance from the end at the NRT. It makes a good resting place.

American Tobacco Trail

love this trail, but shout “on your left”.

March, 2020 by chpsych

This is all new to me . Where I come from people shout out “on your left”. Here most bikers do not do this despite being urged to by frequent signs. Please people use your voice!

Bethabara Greenway

From Bethabara Park to Eastern End

March, 2020 by yohaun

Parking at the visitor center you walk down the hill through the field cross a foot bridge to reach the trail. Turning left the trail is paved and leveluntil you reach Old Town Rd. There the trail gets very much more strenuous. With a lot of hills which includes several steep stairs in the woods where most of the trail is dirt. You go through a lit tunnel under Silas Pkwy. The trail ends about 1/4 mile further at a locked private gate.

Dick & Willie Passage Rail Trail

New section trailhead on Spruce Street Gorgeous and Musical

February, 2020 by saxapahawnc

Section 6B recently opened the trailhead with parking and restroom on Spruce Street, without exact address at Mulberry Creek (approx 1990 Spruce Street). It's about a half mile past Brookdale merging with Spruce at the Carilion Clinics and Spruce Street Station. After another follow up lab or doctor visit, hiking with the dog on Dick and Willie Passage is therapeutic. Minimal street noise at the parking lot, new evergreens lining the trailhead and new restroom facility, this is a tranquil spot to relax, breathe, and enjoy gorgeous scenery on highly maintained paved trails with excellent drainage.

Trail signs dot the length of the trail, easily sighted to stay on trail along creek, Country Club Drive, then more asphalt paved, densely wooded trail. Calls of frogs and creek water tinkling accompanied us the first quarter mile. The sounds of the river rushing picked up after Country Club Drive ended, as we were east of Smith River, again on well-sign marked asphalt trail, until a pond behind the sports complex.

Dog poop bag stations and a couple trash receptacles would be excellent to keep the trail as clean as possible while hiking and biking. The gravel flanking the asphalt and drainage/swales engineered along the trail kept water and mud off-trail, making this as dry as possible after multiple days of precipitation, or snow melting, more recently. I and the paws were dry, a perk we don't get in our own currently muddy yard. Excellent addition to parks and trails in Henry County. We plan to drive down solely for trail hiking and picnicking with the furry family in tow.

Neuse River Trail

Neuse River Trail

November, 2019 by bobspdlpshr

I rode theTrail in September I would give it a 10 star out of 10 stars real fantastic trail I love the trees the pavement the scenery and I own a bike shop in Wisconsin . A lot of the trails in my area are not paved this trail is well maintained and paved . I can’t wait to go back to this trail again in the near future .

Riverwalk Trail (VA)

yes, only two gaps (see Aug. review)

September, 2019 by jackritterskamp

Today we rode the center section between the gaps, plus the part on the south side of the river. North side accessible via Angler's & Dan Daniel parks, plus River St/Riverside Dr (same road) parking lots on weekends. GREAT ride even with gaps.

American Tobacco Trail

Excellent for walking, not suitable for cycling

September, 2019 by jwwf

The part in Durham I got to ride was shady and well-maintained but I'd never ride it again. I'm used to riding trails that have long stretches and don't cross dangerous, busy streets every block or so. While this trail would be *excellent* for walking and I do see people biking, it's not one I'd recommend for the latter. There are too many opportunities for a bad interaction with an inattentive driver. I had a near-miss with a driver who didn't respect the trail/crosswalk warning lights as it was.

Riverwalk Trail (VA)

Two known gaps

August, 2019 by jackritterskamp

We started at Angler's Park and rode toward Dan Daniels Park. Just before going under US-29/58 there is a section that is washed out. We next parked at the YMCA and rode to the west end then reversed and rode down-river until yet another washout blocked us. We ran out of time, but the center section between these two blockages should be reachable from Dan Daniels Park. We enjoyed the trip and will be doing this again.

Speight Branch Greenway

Nice trail

August, 2019 by ray.brown_tl

Used this when I was visiting NC in July 2019. This trail is short but well maintained and the maps show that it will be expanded and connected to other trails. Cary will some day have trails all over it. It was 95 out when I used this trail, you may want a cooler day but my bike takes the heat good.
