Salem Creek Greenway

Nice paved trail

August, 2020 by cawattleworth

Enjoyable 5 mile mostly flat trail along the creek that connects to the 7 mile Salem Lake unpaved (packed dirt/crushed gravel) trail around the lake. There are a couple of fairly steep, but short hills. Greenway trail is probably 60% shaded. Two spots not far from the Salem Lake end the trail goes through the creek, which isn’t a problem for bikers at normal water levels other than possible wet feet. A bridge would be nice. My biggest criticism, however, is the South Main street area. I guess the road bridge was too low to permit the trail to go under, so you wind up, around, over and around again to get back on the trail on other side of S Main. Biggest issue is inadequate signage in the area as there are other paved trails and sidewalks In the area that can cause confusion.

Bicentennial Greenway

Very Bumpy

August, 2020 by waskess11

As others have commented , this paved Greenaway is not smooth due to many humps and bumps from tree roots. Lots of cracks and difficult to tell when a crack is a bulge or just a crack. Nice Scenery, not too difficult, but if you go, Be Careful and go slow!

Riverwalk Greenway

Bikes allowed on western portion

July, 2020 by alois_tl

We ride this trail on our bikes weekly. It’s true the eastern portion is closed to bikes, but there is about 2.5 miles open for very nice biking. It’s best to start at Gold Park in West Hillsborough. This trail can be busy at times, but it is shaded most of the way with great views of the Eno River.

Bicentennial Greenway

roots killing our bikes

July, 2020 by bholmes75

Last week fiance broke his wheel hitting a bump. The day i hit a bump broke my pedal near gibson park.

Bicentennial Greenway

Not for road bikes

July, 2020 by chamlett1

Sure the trail is asphalt but the tree roots sticking out made it a very bumpy ride and uncomfortable ride. My friend and I drove from Clayton and Durham to ride the Bicentennial Greenway. We got on at the Penny Rd location. We were very disappointed. There were stairs and even a blockage that had a sign to dismount our bikes. It would be nice if Guilford County Parks would invest in fixing the trail.

Meadowmont Greenway

peaceful...

June, 2020 by bharr777

Simple but a nice area and the trail because off into other greenways.

Riverwalk Greenway

PEDESTRIAN ONLY

June, 2020 by jackritterskamp

This is a nice trail, the river walk end is CLEARLY and PROMINENTLY marked as no bikes allowed. Much of the speedway end of the trail was difficult to bike (we only saw signs later after being told to look). Sadly it's the only trail in this part of the state.

Enjoyed the quick down and back on this clean trail with pretty views.

Bicentennial Greenway

Not Road Bike Usable

May, 2020 by tloganenterprises

I started at Penny Road heading north. Within a mile I encountered multiple tree roots bulging the pavement upward. I almost think the responsible maintenance department is clueless on how to build and maintain a trail. If you build an asphalt trail (cheaper than concrete) through a forest, tree roots will destroy the asphalt in short order by heaving the asphalt upwards. You either need to make a well built concrete trail or block roots from creeping under the asphalt. Neither was done on this trail. I finally turned around when it became too dangerous to continue as the pavement was getting worse. I don't think I would even jog on this trail with the surface as uneven as it is. The situation is even worse on a sunny day when hundreds of branches/leaves cast shadows all over the trail - obscuring your view of how bad the trail is.
