Dunn-Erwin Rail-Trail

great family bike ride!

September, 2020 by merrimanmarketing

We had a great family bike ride: 4 adults and three kids, started at the Dunn end of the trail and rode to Erwin and back. The section in downtown Erwin is nicely incorporated into a block of downtown that included an excellent bakery. Great cookies to fuel the ride back to the car. Trail is pretty flat, long low grades. Surface is compacted gravel. There are some roads to cross so we had to keep close to the kids. Enjoy

Neuse River Trail

So Lucky To Have This As My "Home" Trail

August, 2020 by warrenkurtzman

I really got into biking a few months back and have already come to realize how fortunate I am to live less than ten minutes from this trail. It has become my go-to place for riding, as I usually hit it two or three mornings each week and then go for a longer ride on it once almost every weekend.

Thus far I have ridden about 20 of the northernmost miles of the trail; I park near the trailhead by Falls Lake and head south from there before turning around and heading back. One of the things I've really come to appreciate about this trail is that it has virtually no street crossings. The only one I've hit is at Anderson Point Park, and even there you only have to cross the entrance to a seldom-used parking area.

The Neuse River Greenway Trail is beautiful and features numerous scenic crossings back and forth across the river. It is well-maintained, clearly-marked (with mileage markers every quarter-mile) and offers many areas to stop and rest, including some with restroom facilities. It can get a little busy at certain points on the weekends, but users are generally friendly and courteous and I've never found it too crowded to ride at the pace I want.

An added benefit is that the trail offers connections to numerous other trails that are part of Raleigh's excellent and frequently-expanding greenway system, including the Walnut Creek, Crabtree Creek and Abbotts Creek Trail. Once I reach my goal of riding all 27.5 miles of it, I look forwarding the exploring these connected trails.

Cape Fear River Trail

Paved and scenic

August, 2020 by barrett_homer

I biked this trail this morning Aug 9. I was pleasantly surprised to find most of the trail was shaded and paved. Bikers, joggers, and hikers all seemed friendly and cordial toward each other. North to south is slightly more downhill than traveling north. One hill coming back is a bit of a booger, but a great enjoyable ride nonetheless.

Walnut Creek Trail

great for new cyclists

August, 2020 by jeronicag

Great trail for new cyclists. Not intimidating and enough natural elements to get you use on the bike. Inclines to practice braking and getting use to riding at high speeds. I will be back.

Neuse River Trail

best trail I’ve been on.

August, 2020 by ambnc1

I rode 30 miles on Neuse River Trail today. It’s a beautiful, scenic ride. I ride it frequently and it’s never crowded, but it’s always nice to pass walkers, other cyclists, runners and strollers.

Walnut Creek Trail

Walnut Creek Trail

August, 2020 by segacyclist

My neighbor and I have ridden the entire WCT from Lake Johnson to the Neuse River Trail and back a dozen or more times. It’s fully paved and twists and turns along Walnut Creek. Much of it is shaded. We’ve found it to be less congested than the Neuse River and American Tobacco Trails. The trail is generally well maintained. The signage leaves a bit to be desired - but with almost everyone carrying a smartphone it’s easy to find your way if you take a wrong turn. One word of caution - stay away after a rainstorm! The trail has dozens of boardwalk sections that literally become slick as ice when damp. My neighbor and I (both seasoned cyclists) have each fallen on the wet boardwalks. It’s easy to see lots of scarring on the boardwalks, particularly on the curves - from pedals and chainrings making contact with the wood when someone crashed. I wish the city could apply anti-skid coatings of some kind - particularly where the decking is scarred. Also, after a major rain storm, the longer tunnels and several sections of the trail become covered in silt, in some places, 6 inches deep. It’s a bit nasty riding through a dark tunnel through 1 or more inches of slick, sucking mud. The city does a pretty good job clearing things up, but it may be several days or even weeks before they get to the whole trail. All things considered, it’s a pretty good trail. I will continue to ride it unless I seriously injure myself on the boardwalks.

Walnut Creek Trail

No Lights

June, 2020 by mjhouse2006

"No lights" in the tunnel why?

Neuse River Trail

Nice, tame trail; watch for signage

June, 2020 by strategy

I did a wonderful 20 miles on the trail today. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It rolls slightly and crosses the river a couple of times, giving some nice vistas. People were friendly and respectful. My single complaint is that the signage could be better. There are places where multiple trails cross and there are posts with signs the size of index cards to tell you which turn off is which. I had to stop three times (I'm not a native) to make sure I was going in the proper direction.

White Oak Creek Greenway

Awesome greenway

May, 2020 by rebeccaelem

Beautiful boardwalks and even a wetlands area with beavers, buzzards, and tons of turtles. Connects with the ATT.

Swift Creek Greenway

Nice and Easy

May, 2020 by misrache

This is an easy trail to ride, though it is sandwiched between two inclines, so little ones will need help. Very shaded and natural.
