Speight Branch Greenway offers a paved, shaded route through a residential area of Cary, which lies on the western edges of Raleigh. The trail begins at Southeast Cary Parkway and travels north along Speight Branch Creek. A pedestrian tunnel safely takes trail-goers under Tryon Road, then the trail skirts by Macedonia Lake, where a new 24-acre park is planned. The trail ends at Tryon Village Shopping Center, which is anchored by a Harris Teeter grocery store and Walgreens drug store.
Currently, no public parking is offered near Speight Branch Greenway, but trail-goers enjoying the restaurants and shops of Tryon Village Shopping Center (corner of Tryon Road and Walnut Street), at the trail's northern end, may wish to park there.
Used this when I was visiting NC in July 2019. This trail is short but well maintained and the maps show that it will be expanded and connected to other trails. Cary will some day have trails all over it. It was 95 out when I used this trail, you may want a cooler day but my bike takes the heat good.
This is a great location for your first bike ride. We had a great time.
