Mingo Creek Trail Description

Opened in August, 2014, the Mingo Creek Trail connects the town of Knightdale from Mingo Creek Park to the Neuse River Trail, just north of Anderson Point Park in Raleigh. Along its 3.4-mile paved surface, you will pass some residential areas of Knightdale (with a few connections to local streets such as Widewaters Parkway), ride through wooded areas and across long boardwalks over wetlands.

Where the trail intersects Hodge Road, there is a slight detour to rejoin the trail. If coming from Knightdale, head north (right turn) onto Hodge Road, then take your first left onto Princeton Town Street into a residential development. Ride on Princeton Town Street a very short distance and you will see the entrance to the trail on your left.

The trail also runs parallel to the Coastal Carolina Railway line for much of the trail's length.

Parking and Trail Access

Best places to park are at either end of the trail. In Knightdale, park at Mingo Creek Park (100 Parkside Commons Drive). This is a small park at the intersection of Parkside Commons Drive and Laurens Way. There is no signage at the entrance to the park, just a large metal gate. Limited parking is available here.

In Raleigh, park at Anderson Point Park (20 Anderson Point Drive). Pick up the Neuse River Trail off Anderson Point Drive before it enters the park, then ride the Neuse River Trail north a short distance until it meets the Mingo Creek Trail (you'll see a pedestrian bridge on your right).
