Reservoir Park Greenway

Great trail to start our new adventures

November, 2021 by finneganpuppypage

Reservoir park was a wonderful walk to start our new adventures after two years stuck near home because of Covid. Not crowded, runners, walkers, dogs and toddlers on bikes. A beautiful mix of life.

Cape Fear River Trail

Amazing Trail

October, 2021 by cutlerkess

This is my first review on TrailLink but we have ridden many trials. I had to leave this review because this trail is SOOOO special it deserves it. 6.8 miles each way and it has it all. Bridges, train trestles, some decent hills to get your heart pumping a little bit, beautifully paved, friendly people, shaded, etc. We enjoyed this trail so much we repeated again just to make sure we we saw all the surroundings. GO OUT OF YOUR WAY TO HIT THIS ONE!

Neuse River Trail

A perfect and exciting trail!

September, 2021 by robert.richter89

I rode the entire Neuse River Trail (and a bit of the Clayton River Walk) over Labor Day 2021. I started at the Wake Forest trailhead and ended a little past mile 30 in Clayton. I'm used to riding on rail trails that while flat and easy to ride offer very few turns or elevation changes. The Neuse River Trail offers many curves, multiple small elevation changes and just one road crossing (a very quiet country road) along its almost 30 mile length. These constant changes make the Neuse River Trail an exciting departure from my usual rail trail rides.

The trail itself is entirely paved and in immaculate condition. Possibly one of the best paved trails I've ever rode on. There are mile markers every quarter mile and the trail has very clear signage to take one of the many turn offs to a parking lot, a development or even another trail.

My only criticism is that there is only one or two obvious points to get water/bathrooms/something to eat (one being Anderson Point Park). I'm sure there are more options down one of the many turn off points but it was not obvious to me from the trail. Another point of concern is trail etiquette, I did not have any close calls but many cyclists would quickly pass me (I was averaging in the low to mid-teens) without calling out sometimes around some curves. This trail will require your constant attention due to its many curves, slopes and sometimes inconsiderate riders but I found it to be one of the best rides I've taken in a long while and highly recommend this trail.

American Tobacco Trail

Awesome

Wonderful

White Oak Creek Greenway

it’s nice trail

July, 2021 by hakman1129

This trail has lots of smaller “sub-trails” which are also pretty nice to walk on if you don’t want to walk the full 7 mile trail.

White Oak Creek Greenway

well kept up trail.

July, 2021 by ray.brown_tl

Took a bike ride from David Drive to the American Tobacco trail and back. This trail is narrower than what I am used to in Connecticut but on those trails many go to fast, this was a more relaxing ride. Found the trail to be well taken care of and few people using it. On the return where the trail goes under highway 55 they could use signs for which trail goes in each direction. Most other intersections are marked.

love this greenway

June, 2021 by dwanderson1983

Very fun to take small kids. Took my 7 year old and he really enjoyed it

American Tobacco Trail

Great Trail

June, 2021 by deborahdebmartin

This trail was fun up and over highway! Busy with bikers, walkers and runners on Sunday morning we rode.

Cape Fear River Trail

Blade in the Shade

June, 2021 by danielle.haase83

This trail rocks. Ample parking at both ends of the trail help kickoff any great adventure. Whatever wheels you bring will roll across this fluid surface of glass. Bountiful trees cover the trail a majority of the trip. Scenic vistas made way by boardwalk and bridges. Markers indicate how involved you are. A heed of caution on the descent from the Jordan Soccer Complex end for all you rollerbladers...it’s a bit steep for a couple hills.

Neuse River Trail

Great ride last week on the Neuse River Trail!

May, 2021 by jay1958

Started at Anderson Point in east Raleigh and rode south down past Battle Bridge Rd tunnel - which is pretty cool in itself - and then turned around, ate lunch back at Anderson Point and then rode north. So two out-and-backs from Anderson Point. Rode 27 miles in all.
