Deep river was a great place to walk with your dog. Easy to find
This was our first trail ride in over 2 years and it was so much fun! Easy to get back into. We went from parking at the solite park up to the most northern point. A round trip of almost 14 miles and it was fantastic!
I walked this trail in its entirety twice yesterday. I started at the southernmost point at the NewHill location and made my way to the northernmost point at the Durham Bulls Athletics Park and back. A total of 50+ miles and 14 hours later I can attest to the greatness of this trail. Long, flat with plenty of space, this trail did not disappoint . Beautiful views along the way with plenty of wildlife in the south opening up to a busy city landscape offered much diversity through the hike. I highly recommend!Ihighly recommended
I don’t live in the area but am a nurse at one of the health facilities in the area. I prefer running outdoors but am leaving home before the sun comes up and getting home after dark. I stumbled upon this trail behind my office during a lunch break several years back and loved it. I have been running it before or after work ever since. It’s a little confusing at first as it’s access points are minimally marked. But once you get the layout under your belt it’s a very nice trail!
First time on the ATT. Parked at the New Hill Olive Chapel Road access. So many nice features to this trail. This area is fortunate to have such a lovely trail! Don't hesitate to try it!!
I roundtripped this entire trail in 1 day (44 miles, 4.5 hours, average speed just under 10mph), starting in Durham. Parked in the free lot under the freeway. Unfortunately I noticed a homeless camp there right away. The first 5 or so miles had several homeless camps along the side of the trail; lots of garbage; a security call phone. The next few miles of the trail are currently detoured because of nearby road constructions. Some of the signage along the detour could be improved. I found myself stopping often to look around to see where I was supposed to go next. There are multiple road crossings along the way - stop and be careful crossing the roads; the oncoming cars do not stop for bikers! There are also lots of new homes being constructed along the way as well. The northern end is paved. The southern end finally turns into a nice pleasant ride through the woods (it is fenced-off hunting lands) on a crushed-stone bed. The southern end has large parking areas and restrooms. I was hoping to see more history along the trail, but literally only passed 2 old falling-down tobacco barns along the way. It looks like a great trail (especially the southern end) for locals to jump on for a quick ride or jog, but not something that I as a visitor to the area would ever want or need to ride again.
Really astonished to see it for the first time. Had a great time with kids and family. It will be a great bike riding trail during summer ¿
I recently road the White Oak Greenway trail for the first time, starting from the American Tobacco Trail. The trail is wide with a high quality surface, varying between asphalt, concrete, and wood/trex causeways through wetlands. Since the trail is often adjacent or over wetlands, it is very scenic and peaceful, even though you are in the middle of a large suburban residential developments. I was also happy to find that there were absolutely no road crossings, so the trail is as safe as it gets!
Fresh new Trex planks, which will outlive all of us, replaced the rotting, patched-up wooden planks near the swampy lagoon area alongside Green Level Church roadTy city/state/whoever!
I love running here. There is plenty of shade, a decent amount of small rolling hills, beautiful scenery, and never too crowded. I come here to get lost in my thoughts for my long runs.
Several of the trails in the Moore Parks system are close by my work and this is one of my favorites. The trail is peaceful and nowhere near as busy as the nearby Reservoir park. I have even seen deer and other wildlife as I stroll down it’s length. It’s a dirt path but well maintained. I am not a confident runner, but I will run on this trail because of the good footing. It connects to the Forest Creek trail at the upper end, so although it is not a long trail, you can continue on for miles. There aren’t any of the amenities that the Reservoir park offers, but I like that it’s out of the way. Check it out and enjoy!
Much of this trail is flat but there are great small climbs around Faith Rock and plenty of beautiful scenes along the River among the way
