Short trail, but came from the Centennial Sportsplex so that added some mileage. I road a hybrid without a cyclometer. Great trail if your kids are tied up at the park. You can loop around to beef it out if you'd like. Trail connects up a lot of neighbor parks. I recommend. Kiosks all over that show trail map. Could still have been better marked.
Surprised to see Rocky Mount with such a nice trail.
Great trail! Perfect for walking, running and bicycling.
I was surprised to find out Rocky Mount has this nice trail. There are a few bumpy places and a few hills, but nothing I couldn't handle.

First thing, this trail is only 3.1 Miles one way according to my odometer.
My wife and I road this trail Thanksgiving weekend, it is a nice trail. Like many of the greenways in and around central NC, this trail would benefit from some work. The asphalt is raised in many areas by the roots of trees. The parks along the trail seemed to be well kept and would make a great picnic spots.
The leaves were down and the Tar River beautiful, this trail was fun to ride even though it was shorter than advertised. If you want a short ride, it is worth the drive.
This trail does not have any events yet.
