This trail seems to be well maintained. We rode our bicycles over several parts of this trail during our week stay in Raleigh, weather permitting. A little hilly in spots, but worth the work! Nice bridges, wildlife and scenery.

I only did a small part of it, but it was a pretty trail to go for a run. I did it in November and it was well maintained and nice. I would travel more of it the next time I'm in town!

Well maintained, beautiful views, go as long or short I trip as you like. Bring a lunch and eat at the picnic area or along the trail. Well done Dept. of Parks and Recreation.

This trail is excellent for walking or biking and appropriate for any age. It is completely paved, very wide, and mostly flat. There are a number of wooden bridges, and it is quite picturesque -- you will see lots of trees, get views of the...More
