South Fork New River Greenway

Short, But Nice - and Connects to a Longer trail

November, 2017 by kwangler_tl

This is a nice short, flat trail. Nice indoor permanent facilities (closed in winter). There is a link at the end of this trail to go up into the hills- really nice but steep start to it. You can veer off to the left and loop back to the main road (not highly traveled and fine for running) or keep going up to the top for great views of Boone - but be warned - it is a trek to get up there. The main, flat trail is great for biking or running - the hill trails I don't think would work for biking - at least not for the average biker.

This trail continues under Rt 421 on to a country road - if you follow that, it connects about a mile down to the Boone Greenway trails. All in all it is 4 miles - 8m round trip and makes for a nice, scenic long run.

Torrence Creek Greenway

Nice ride!

November, 2017 by tgoheen91

Great Saturday ride! Path is shady and wide.. saw lots of dogs 🐾

Emerald Path

Cold but enjoyable ride!

November, 2017 by mwepps68

I had difficulty finding parking at the end of the trail but was able to find a public beach access parking in Indian Beach just past the end of the off-the-road portion. The cross road stops could get a little monotonous in the busier months but were not a big issue in November. It was cold and windy but still was an enjoyable ride. There are several public restrooms along the route.
The description only includes the portion of the trail that parallels, but is off, the main road (about 11 miles). There is an on-road trail that continues into Indian Beach and Atlantic Beach (probably close to 25 miles total). This road is fairly busy but the bike path is wide enough so it isn't uncomfortable.

Black Creek Greenway

The trail was excellent. The people on the trail were very friendly. Great place to ride.

Shelby Rail-Trail

Rail Trail

October, 2017 by danawynne777

This trail has a lot of pros but one big con. Pros are: extremely well maintained (hats off to those maintaining it), no big inclines which is great if you have joint pain like I do, freakin' AWESOME. suspension bridge, beautiful walnut trees and blackberry bushes, trail follows river so nice views of that. Con: noise from highway can be heard during nearly the entire hike. This is a major turn off for me because when I hike, I want to be immersed in the sites and sounds of nature and leave the outside world behind.

Little Tennessee River Greenway (Franklin)

Great Western NC Greenway

October, 2017 by lharcher462

The Little Tennessee River Greenway might be one of our new favorites to ride. I would say 80 percent of the trail is asphalt and the remainder is hard pack gravel. Three beautiful bridges, numerous benches and picnic tables are available to take a break on. The trail is advertised at five miles long. We did not ride the portion on the northern end as it requires you to cross a divided highway in town. We parked at the Tassee Park Greenway entrance and there is a really nice pavilion there with clean bathrooms to boot. If you are in the western portion of NC I highly recommend you give this trail a try. Let me add that I must disagree with a few other reviews about dangerous areas on this greenway, we didnt encounter any. I have pics and video posted on my Facebook page @bikesbeerand grub.

Corolla Greenway

Don't be fooled by the name

October, 2017 by stevespr1

This is essentially a 6-mile sidewalk ride along Route 12. There are no signs that say Corolla Greenway. You're not going to see the Sound or the Lighthouse or the Inn unless you take a little bit detour off the route (in other words you're not biking right by them). We asked three people who live/work in Corolla, including at the park by the Lighthouse and none knew what or where the Corolla Greenway was. Also, don't be fooled by the map where it tells you that you can park on the North Beach Access Road at the North End of the trail - you must have a 4-wheel drive vehicle and drive on the beach (preferably with slightly deflated tires) to get to that parking. This is a nice little bike ride if you're staying nearby, but it's not worth driving any distance for.

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.
