Black Creek Greenway Description

At just over 7 miles, the Black Creek Greenway is one of Cary’s longest and most popular trails. The paved pathway connects several parks, schools, and shopping and dining areas.

On its southern end, the trail reaches Fred G. Bond Metro Park, where it connects to the White Oak Creek Greenway that will, in turn, one day link to the American Tobacco Trail heading north to Durham. These trails are part of the East Coast Greenway, a vast and developing trail network from Maine to Florida.

The trail’s northern end reaches Lake Crabtree County Park, where recreational opportunities abound, including mountain biking, hiking, volleyball, and picnicking, as well as fishing and boating in the lake. And, just south of the county park, kids will love North Cary Park with its playground, climbing boulders and sports fields.

Parking is available in the parks along the greenway (from north to south):

  • Lake Crabtree County Park (1400 Aviation Parkway, Morrisville)
  • North Cary Park (1100 Norwell Boulevard, Cary)
  • Robert V. Godbold Park (2050 Northwest Maynard Road, Cary)

Black Creek Greenway Reviews

good for walking

A lot of holes and roots growing. Not good for skateboarding.

Older trail to become newer trail

The Black Creek Greenway is a great trail, but it's been showing its age and its vulnerability to flooding. The Town of Cary is working to rebuild the trail on higher ground. Check their website for the project's current status.
