Pinehurst Greenway

Hospital Employee

April, 2021 by bzzbbhk4xg

I don’t live in the area but am a nurse at one of the health facilities in the area. I prefer running outdoors but am leaving home before the sun comes up and getting home after dark. I stumbled upon this trail behind my office during a lunch break several years back and loved it. I have been running it before or after work ever since. It’s a little confusing at first as it’s access points are minimally marked. But once you get the layout under your belt it’s a very nice trail!

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.

American Tobacco Trail

Nice, safe and peaceful trail

March, 2021 by srinivasreddy.ps

Really astonished to see it for the first time. Had a great time with kids and family. It will be a great bike riding trail during summer ¿

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!

Clayton River Walk

Beautiful scenic Trail

December, 2020 by dawnrbarnett

This is my favorite trail because it connects to so many others. You meander along the Neuse River, while enjoying transitions into open fields, woodlands, and some boulder areas. It’s medium and difficulty with some uphill travel, which is always treated with a downhill ride. However it is mostly flat. Too many great spots for photo shoots to share!

Cape Fear River Trail

Favorite running spot

December, 2020 by philip.christine.bacon

I love running here. There is plenty of shade, a decent amount of small rolling hills, beautiful scenery, and never too crowded. I come here to get lost in my thoughts for my long runs.

Neuse River Trail

awesome trail

November, 2020 by merkey

Visiting the area and discovered this trail. What a fantastic trail this is. Scenic, safe, great condition people using it were friendly and it was not crowded. Can’t wait to ride it again when I am back in the area

Walnut Creek Trail

great trail

November, 2020 by merkey

Very nice scenery. Mostly flat with some nice little hills at Johnson Lake. Thoroughly enjoyed the ride! Hope to be in the area again sometime to ride it again.

Symphony Lake Greenway

Nice Trail

November, 2020 by mary.waligora

This is a very nice trail; a loop with a tail. Asphalt throughout and fairly popular. You have to make sure there isn't an event at the amphitheater though; the gates will then be closed and you will have to turn around (you can't go around the gates really either).

Annie Jones Greenway

A nice, short, three-branched trail

November, 2020 by mary.waligora

A nice three-branched trail; mostly paved asphalt, with some concrete northwest of Annie Jones park. There is a nice bridge at one point.
