Sam's Branch Greenway Description

Sam's Branch Greenway is a short, but scenic trail in the town of Clayton, just south of Raleigh. At the Neuse River, it connects to the Clayton River Walk, which in turn connects to the Neuse River Trail, offering a combined 33 continuous miles of paved greenway. One day, it will continue west to Legend Park and Municipal Park.

 

Parking and Trail Access

The trailhead offers a gravel parking lot and is located on the western end of the trail on North O'Neill Street.

Sam's Branch Greenway Reviews

We actually started at the local Comfort Inn only 3 miles away and rode to the North O'Neill Street trailhead. I don't recommend this though, the traffic is fast and there is no edge to ride on. Better to just drive to the trailhead and park there. The trailhead parking area is a pretty good sized, stone and dirt covered with plenty of shade. The handicap Port O Potty was most welcome, and fairly clean.
The trail, although short, was very nicely paved and clean. There was a nice display of painted fishes on the small bridge that was well worth stopping to view.
The Sam's Branch Greenway links to the Clayton Walking Trail, which continues on to several more very nice trails.
The trails in this are were all a pleasure to ride.

Was looking for a park and ended up on this trail in Clayton. Who knew? The trail was clean, well kept and not busy at all. The only thing that would have made this a better experience would be mile markers and a map. Beware of the horseflies on the trail.
