Oklawaha Greenway

Great Trail

October, 2017 by jl_minter

This is a great trail that connects 5 city parks near downtown Hendersonville. It's 10 feet wide so easily accommodates walkers and bikers. Pretty scenery, butterfly gardens, a few water fountains, and 3 bike fixing stations dot the path. You can extend your walk by walking the trails at several of the parks along the way.

Walnut Creek Trail

Nice ride

September, 2017 by jasperpjm

We biked from Worthdale park east to the Neuse river trail. Beautiful well maintained and a little hilly. This section is 5 stars. We then went 4 miles or so west ,after struggling to find the street connection , and it was a little more dated , not quite as wide, and in need of some cleaning but pretty nice. We rated this section a 3+. Well worth a visit.

Neuse River Trail

September Bike Trip 2-17

September, 2017 by jasperpjm

Our group of 5 old guys spent 4 nights in a rental home in Wake Forest. We had a direct trail connection to the Neuse River Trail(NRT). it was our second trip to the area and once again the biking did not disappoint. This is one of the best rails we have ever ridden. Extremely well maintained, scenic and fairly level with some short climbs and descents.

Reservoir Park Greenway

Great running trail, gorgeous scenery!

September, 2017 by amberazul14

I have wobbly ankles so some of the trail was moderately challenging (as opposed to running on flat asphalt) but it is truly gorgeous scenery and a lovely run. The restrooms were clean, the views were gorgeous and I look forward to running here frequently and bringing my kids to kayak. I'd easily rate it 5 stars, however I tripped on a root and gouged my knee pretty badly. If I wasn't so clumsy this would definitely rate 5 out of 5 stars.

Salem Lake Trail

Salem Lake Trail

September, 2017 by rphilyaw1

First ride around the lake last week. The leaves have really not started to change but when they do it will be nice. The ride was 7 miles. Not strenuous. Caught myself checking out nature and the wildlife and not paying attention to others on the trail. ;) Thinking of getting a bell for my bike to warn people I am coming up on them.

Buffalo Creek Preserve Trail

Only a one way trip

September, 2017 by doylegrp

Enjoyed the walk, but this trail does not loop. When you get to the end there's a sign that says this is the end of the trail(it meets a stone road, so you think you can loop), but, you must turn around. Half of the trail has been clear cut of trees with no shade; weeds too high to see much in that area. You could easily loop back out around Mt. Pleasant rd if biking. Definately an easy mountain bike trail.

Cape Fear River Trail

Catawba River Greenway

Live 2.5 hours away, but will make more visits

September, 2017 by haga1106

The Catawba River Greenway in Morganton is one of the nicest biking/walking paths I have ever experienced. The trail is listed the at 3.80 miles, we logged 10 miles on it. There are some side paths to take.
I parked at the Catawba Soccer Complex, there are five other parking areas that I saw, Greenlee Ford, River Village (NC 181), Catawba Meadows (Sanford Drive) ,Rocky Ford (US 64/NC 18), and Freedom Park (NC 126)
My recommendation, and this is what I am going to do the next time, because I will definitely go back, is to park by the restaurant named Judge's Riverside. The parking there is shaded and right on the path.
I would estimate that ninety percent of the path is shaded, the path runs right along the Catawba river and has numerous decks with seating that have been built and they hang out over the river. Nice places to stop, relax and listen to the water, additionally, there are distance markers every tenth of a mile. On the eastern end of the trail is a native american village interpretive center, it is located in Catawba Meadows Park. We will check it out on the next trip. There are also a couple of restaurants located along the path and I guess we will have to check them out on subsequent trips. I have a bunch of pictures on my facebook page, here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/BikesBeerandGrub/

Kings Mountain Gateway Trail

Gateway Trail

September, 2017 by spurrier_tl

The short loop trails are a great way to unwind. Either the Butterfly Garden or at the top of Cardio Hill. Also offers workout stations which I haven't seen in sometime. Will maintained and great facilities at the trail head. Great view of Crowders and Kings Mountain from the top of Cardio Hill.

Nantahala Bikeway

Nantahala Bikeway AKA Laurie's Trail

September, 2017 by granola8

This is a short but sweet trail. If your are biking you can continue your ride up Wayah Rd. to the cascades of the upper Nantahala and even further on the Old River Rd. This trail does not start at the Nantahala Outdoor Center as advertised. It starts at Winding Stairs Rd. and ends at the commercial raft put in. This is about six miles west of NOC and just off highway 19/74. During rafting season (March thru October) start at Winding Stairs Rd. parking area just off 19/74, cross 2 bridges and follow the trail along the river. This is part of the Bartram Trail System.

Highland Rail Trail

Very Short Walk

September, 2017 by rayinnh

Nice area but very short. There is an area where you can walk down from the trail to the water but it's quite steep.

Lower McAlpine Creek, McMullen Creek & Four Mile Creek Greenways

Lower McAlpine Creek

September, 2017 by rayinnh

Very nice trail but you must be careful if you are a walker or hiker. Some people riding bikes need to slow down coming around corners and its very easy to have an accident. Nice long walk under cover with some spots of heated sun.
