Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

great first ride

September, 2022 by wantucce63

I’m from Illinois and this is my first ride since moving to NC. I cannot stand and climb like I used to do to an injury so was nervous as this state is very mountainous and hilly. This trail challenged but did not kill me. A lot of road crossings but most were very clear and hardly messed with flow. Everyone polite and shared the trail. A good ride and I’ll be back.

Bicentennial Greenway

Greenway Trail

September, 2022 by allenmaureen

Very bumpy trail and Zi don’t recommend for biking as it has stairs to climb on the South end. Great walking path, beautiful scenery.

Salem Lake Trail

Fabulous Trail

September, 2022 by juliehdockery

This is great 7 mile loop around beautiful Salem Lake. The trail is wide and generally well maintained. It’s crushed gravel or hard packed dirt and has a couple of spots where it rutted out a bit. But I ride it often and so do many other cyclists, runners, walkers, moms pushing strollers. So it’s not really a problem. Lots of wildlife to be seen; herons, deer, turtles. Drinking water is available at a couple of points on the loop and there are plenty of benches if you need a rest. Don’t forget to take your camera on this one!!

Black Creek Greenway

mixed experience

September, 2022 by shilla7461

Drove from north Raleigh to bike this trail and was somewhat disappointed. Sure there were nice parts… the lake view, shaded ride through the wooded areas along the creek/river. However, as another person stated, the trail was not well marked in some areas, you cross several busy roads and the detour was confusing and basically a ride through a neighborhood.

Muddy Creek Greenway

Accessible to mobility scooter users

September, 2022 by patbirdtalk

This is superb for those needing mobility assistance. Looking for new trails that we, lifetime hikers, can use now we are in our seventies and one of us is mobility challenged, has become a new pastime. Muddy Creek is excellent!

Roanoke Canal Trail

Disappointing

August, 2022 by scessna68

For starters, the Weldon end of the trail is very scenic. However, it is not a fun trail to ride. It is very poorly maintained - lots of roots and rocks on the surface, at one spot we had to lift our bikes over a fallen tree, another spot was washed out, and the directional signs are very lacking. At several places we weren’t sure where the trail was. This is a much better walking trail than a biking one.

Neuse River Trail

love the trail.

August, 2022 by jaworthington

Paved and shaded trail. Perfect for my training runs. Only thing is I have to drive 45 minutes to get here and by the time I get here I have to use the restroom. No port-a-potty in sight.

American Tobacco Trail

American tobacco trail

Mostly paved and few road crossing until you get into Durham. Tough to follow after that

Antiquity Greenway

easy quiet walk

August, 2022 by jimrobin1205

It was a very nice, easy walk. Asphalt path was clean, well kept and wide following a power line right of way. Slight decline one way and incline on the way back. Not strenuous though but I did break a slight sweat. No shade at all. We walked on a cloudy afternoon 5:00 pm 83 degrees and it was nice. If it had been sunny and hotter it would not have been enjoyable at all. Some bug spray would have been good. Had some knats. Saw some bunnies and birds.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Favorite Rail Trail in Western NC

August, 2022 by jwill77nc2_tl

We love this trail - it is our “go-to” when we want to get a good ride and enjoy the area. The trail passes through a number of great towns that have wonderful places to stop and eat along the way. We typically park in Spindale, which is about the midpoint of the trail. There is plenty of free parking there and things to see after your ride.
