White Oak Creek Greenway Description

The White Oak Creek Greenway runs through Cary, a city in North Carolina’s Triangle region that also includes Raleigh and Durham. On the west end the trail connects to the American Tobacco Trail, the state’s longest rail-trail, which heads 22 miles north to Durham.

he Town of Cary completed this trail in early 2020 and it now spans seven miles. It offers a paved, pleasant ride or walk through wooded areas and wetlands, providing access to several parks, including (from west to east): White Oak Park, Davis Drive Park, and Fred G. Bond Metro Park. In the latter park, the trail connects to the Black Creek Greenway, which heads farther east.

All three trails are part of the East Coast Greenway, which will one day extend from Maine to Florida.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the parks along the trail (from west to east):

  • White Oak Park (1216 Jenks Carpenter Road)
  • Davis Drive Park (1610 Davis Drive)
  • Fred G. Bond Metro Park (801 High House Road)

White Oak Creek Greenway Reviews

it’s nice trail

This trail has lots of smaller “sub-trails” which are also pretty nice to walk on if you don’t want to walk the full 7 mile trail.

well kept up trail.

Took a bike ride from David Drive to the American Tobacco trail and back. This trail is narrower than what I am used to in Connecticut but on those trails many go to fast, this was a more relaxing ride. Found the trail to be well taken care of and few people using it. On the return where the trail goes under highway 55 they could use signs for which trail goes in each direction. Most other intersections are marked.

love this greenway

Very fun to take small kids. Took my 7 year old and he really enjoyed it

High quality trail with no road crossings!

I recently road the White Oak Greenway trail for the first time, starting from the American Tobacco Trail. The trail is wide with a high quality surface, varying between asphalt, concrete, and wood/trex causeways through wetlands. Since the trail is often adjacent or over wetlands, it is very scenic and peaceful, even though you are in the middle of a large suburban residential developments. I was also happy to find that there were absolutely no road crossings, so the trail is as safe as it gets!

Accordion

Fresh new Trex planks, which will outlive all of us, replaced the rotting, patched-up wooden planks near the swampy lagoon area alongside Green Level Church roadTy city/state/whoever!

Awesome greenway

Beautiful boardwalks and even a wetlands area with beavers, buzzards, and tons of turtles. Connects with the ATT.

This greenway is poorly marked and the trail is broken in places by a detour through busy city streets and 50 mph traffic. This was an awful ride spent being slightly lost and pretty frustrated at the large detour required to get back on the greenway trail. I won’t be back.

Great trail for a morning walk. It's part of the Cary Greenway and connects to other trails
