Buffalo Creek Greenway (Neuse Riverwalk)

Greenway Maintenance

August, 2019 by bicyclerider128

Greenway has overgrown trees hanging over in the path. Grass is high on side of path. Reason for keeping grass cut weekly is so snakes can be seen. Boards on bridges are sticking up. ( Dangerous for cyclist and more for runners.)
It is a nice greenway and we enjoy riding it. Town just needs to take more pride in it other than just ham and yam time each year.

Neuse River Trail

Volunteers Patrol he NRT -Maps available at REI or TrailLink APP

August, 2019 by browntrout4

As a former volunteer under the auspices of The NRPD I’ve ridden this Greenway many times end to end. Not a security risk but suggest ride or jog in pairs for enjoyment. Be aware of children and strollers and prepared to stop on busy weekends. Even in hot weather trail has many mature trees for cool shade ,be aware of possible loose large branches on windy days,wear a helmet!. The prettiest and perhaps most challenging/exciting is the section from Anderson Park S. Plenty of parking on either side of bridge entering park. But entrance to trail hidden by cedars down on left 2nd entrance,nearest white cottage, once youve ridden you will always find it,caution returning cyclists ride fast on exit ,be vigilant,wear bright clothing to be seen. Restrooms at Anderson last on trail until Garner! My favorite section is Anderson Park S. to Mial Plantation ,lovely sweeps and downhill runs ,countryside resembles Vermont with long white fences. This is the quieter section .triathlon rider groups on weekend s prevalent. There are numerous benches for a picnic along the way. Come prepared . Near “Riverside subdivision past Johnson County line theres a bridge with picnic tables at each end and on bridge ,nice in fall weather and occasional bald eagles can be observed.

Cape Fear River Trail

A very nice find

August, 2019 by timmy0728

Let's start with this.
The trail is not flat.
Level, yes. Paved, yes. Mile markers every half mile. Mostly shaded (good on a very hot day) Flat, no.
There are a couple pretty decent hills, saw a biker walking her bike up one.
If you start at Jordan soccer park, it is mostly down hill, which means back up.
A couple little bridges, one good size covered bridge over the creeks make for nice scenary, along with the skinny squirrels.
Another runner said the further end was more flat. Next visit I'll plan to run entire trail.
So, as usual. If in the area and want to get a few miles in, head here. You will enjoy the trail and the challenge.

White Oak Creek Greenway

White Oak Creek Greenway

June, 2019 by ryanford99

This greenway is poorly marked and the trail is broken in places by a detour through busy city streets and 50 mph traffic. This was an awful ride spent being slightly lost and pretty frustrated at the large detour required to get back on the greenway trail. I won’t be back.

Mingo Creek Trail

Nice Diversion

May, 2019 by ajw

This trail provides a nice diversion from the main Neuse River trail. It is less crowded, and gives you a diversity of scenery, running near neighborhoods and wetlands. Mostly shaded. It follows a powerline, creek and railway most of the way. Some stretches are on boardwalks. The remainder is smooth asphalt. Mostly flat. Very good. Will ride again sometime.

Crabtree Creek Trail

Most of it closed in 2019

May, 2019 by ajw

You can ride from the Neuse River trail to about New Bern Blvd, but west of there is all torn up for sewer work. Check the link on this page to the Raleigh Greenways page to get construction updates to see what parts are open.

Walnut Creek Trail

Nice trail. Loved the marsh bridges!

March, 2019 by opstadp

Rode this trail today. Started at the Avent lot at Lake Johnson. Unfortunately they are doing some sort of construction there that involves part of the trail so almost immediately we were forced on a detour of about 2 miles of just sidewalks up and around Lake Dam Rd until we could get the trail again. The trail is nicely paved and partially wooded. Very enjoyable to ride. Love the marsh bridges and tunnels. Adds some fun variety to the ride we hadn't experienced on any other trail. Also loved area at Lake Raleigh. Definite photo op!!! My only "complaint" would be that the trail is not well marked when it hits Water Works street and the Rocky Branch trail. We lost the trail on our way out at the water works area and some other bikers helped us get straight and then on the return we somehow ended up on Rocky Branch Trail instead of Walnut Creek. They may merge as one but we didn't know and didn't have extra time to hope they did so we used the traillink map and took a street to get us back to Walnut Creek Trail. Hope to come back and ride again sometime. Had about 5 miles to opposite end but had to turn to head back (time crunch) so missed riding the long marsh bridge which would have loved to have done.

American Tobacco Trail

Grateful for this resource

March, 2019 by r.l.parker.88x

I'm fortunate to live within walking distance of the ATT. I walk or bike on it almost every day. Most of my mileage is on the southern half of the trail, south of Southpoint shopping mall. With that in mind here are my observations:

It doesn't have much dramatic scenery, but it does have and promote a sense of serenity along most of its length, which is all the more amazing when you consider that it cuts right through the busy RTP metropolitan area.

The trail is ALWAYS well maintained.

At the southern terminus of the trail, you can see that the rail bed continues, but is blocked by a barricade. Looking at the satellite photos of this area My fervent hope is that one day the rail-trail will be extended down this corridor.

As you would expect in an urban area, the trail can get overcrowded--especially on weekends.

Crabtree Creek Trail

Crabtree Creek Trail

September, 2018 by schneidb51

I know i sound like a crab ... but don't waste your time on this green way. Too many closures may it unreliable. Riding the greenway system in Raleigh is like driving up north during construction season. And you're not safe on the Neuse River Greenway either ... encountered a closure on there just north Anderson Point. No options for detour. Early signage is generally poor - today encountered the closure on Neuse River greenway with no warning. Turned around went back to Anderson point and road west on the Crabtree green way only to encounter several signs announcing a closure for utility work ... which never actually appeared. Only to be stopped at Capital blvd with another unannounced closure ... and by the way that area was closed most of last year.

American Tobacco Trail

Favorite Trail

August, 2018 by bmorrison4

I used to live right on the ATT and absolutely loved it. The trail is nicely kept and is shaded through many parts of it. The ATT made my runs so easy and it is easily one of my favorite trails that I have ever ran.

Crabtree Creek Trail

So scenic, but so prone to closures

August, 2018 by daveconnelly

The Crabtree Creek Greenway is 14 miles long and has been a centerpiece of Raleigh's wonderful greenways network. However, Crabtree-the-Creek is the poster child for why communities should think carefully about investing in floodplains. The stream overflows often, causing trail closures for repairs. The trail also shares this corridor with the city's utilities, which also cause trail closures for repairs. Here's the current list of problems: https://www.raleighnc.gov/parks/content/PRecDesignDevelop/Articles/GreenwayRepairs.html If you have the patience to explore this lovely greenway, be flexible and count on having on-road detours. Or try Raleigh's parallel (and less flood-prone) Walnut Creek Greenway instead. Both trails intersect with Raleigh's Neuse River Greenway, the longest paved trail in NC.

Black Creek Greenway

Older trail to become newer trail

August, 2018 by daveconnelly

The Black Creek Greenway is a great trail, but it's been showing its age and its vulnerability to flooding. The Town of Cary is working to rebuild the trail on higher ground. Check their website for the project's current status. https://www.townofcary.org/recreation-enjoyment/parks-greenways-environment/greenways/black-creek-greenway
