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.
Beautiful trees and rolling hills. We Floridians loved it!
This trail meanders through some pretty tree lined views, and wetlands. Nice people not too crowded and you get to entertain friendly wildlife that watch you walk by.
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.
Not a lot to see, it’s about 30 ft from the water with a tree line blocking the view, but it does have some great bridges and the paved trail is well kept
I found this trail in our neighborhood and it is the perfect path to escape the sun or for an evening stroll. Not difficult. The honeysuckle will transport you back in time to your childhood. Great for biking and walking.
The trail was closed at several spots along the way. Also the start in the Community Center was difficult to find. It is also near a sewage treatment plant so the smell wasn’t fantastic.
We started at the Kids Together playground. We walked all the way down and back. We took a pit stop at MacDonald Woods Park on the way back which is right next to the trail. There were areas of incline and even terrain. My 8 and 10 year old had no difficulty with the inclines. was shaded the majority of the walk.
One end of the trail has been closed for some time now .
Was staying downtown Raleigh and wanted to find a nice place to run. This was it. Very nice trail through the campus of NC State. Was easy to get to and the scenery and trail is very enjoyable.
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!
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
