Took my kids in this trail, we walked the whole trail and back again in a few hours. Very well maintained and clean. Mostly flat with a few small slopes. Partly sun and shady, woods, creek and river views, a little waterfall, wooden bridges, nice parks at both ends, with ample parking.
Our family just purchased new bikes and this was the first trail we rode together. It is shaded and quiet. It was just long enough for a beginning ride. We will definitely do it again!
Greenway has overgrown trees hanging over in the path. Grass is high on side of path. Reason for keeping grass cut weekly is so snakes can be seen. Boards on bridges are sticking up. ( Dangerous for cyclist and more for runners.)
It is a nice greenway and we enjoy riding it. Town just needs to take more pride in it other than just ham and yam time each year.
The trail was nice, comfortable & picturis.The East end of trail starts uphill so plenty of coasting time to west end.
Crosses a few busy streets around Greenville but most of it is gorgeous. A little sandy for a road bike though
Would have been a five star but the start at the Community Center was not well marked. The end of the Trail in Smithfield was next to the main drag where I found a nice deli. Will be back I love Smithfield!
Short trail, but came from the Centennial Sportsplex so that added some mileage. I road a hybrid without a cyclometer. Great trail if your kids are tied up at the park. You can loop around to beef it out if you'd like. Trail connects up a lot of neighbor parks. I recommend. Kiosks all over that show trail map. Could still have been better marked.
Surprised to see Rocky Mount with such a nice trail.
It's on high ground, so the recent rains did not cause any problems. The trail itself is about Jeep width, but it's in a very wide clear path, so it feels very open. There are views of the river, swamps, forest, and train tracks on the ~2 mile trail. (Yes, that's right, it's not really 3 miles. From the museum to the trail, to one end then the other, and back to the museum was 4.53 miles.)
With the unseasonably warm weather recently, the trail could have used a mow. I was almost wishing to be in jeans instead of shorts, but it didn't quite cross the threshold where I wanted to abandon the walk.
As someone else mentioned, the trail does seem to go by a water treatment plant, so there are some foul smelling spots. Also, there was a bit of water across the trail in other areas, so a few drainage pipes would be a good improvement.
It is Thanksgiving day which could be a factor, but there were not very many people there. It was quiet and a very pleasant walk.
Great trail! Perfect for walking, running and bicycling.
Safe and ease.
