I spent every summer, from 1945-1958, at Lapihio Girl Scout Camp at WB Umstead. It is handicap friendly, beautiful, and just as it was 50 years ago. Built by WPA, it's historic. Best influence on me of my life! Just recently returned with two former campers. What a day! Don't forget bug repellent! Pros: Betty Anderson, emp. more

Nature Park in Raleigh is cool 5/24/2002

Umstead is a great park for the Raleigh area, although it's just pitiful compared to pisgah, and the smokies in Western North Carolina. The Water quality of the creeks and ""rivers"" is a joke, and every five or ten minutes while you're out there a plane will fly over on it's way to the airport. The trailheads on the cary side are better in my opinion, more scenic. While the sycamore trail on the hwy 70 entrance is a lot longer (about 6 miles or so). There's also a cool 12 mile loop that I hear is cool, but I've never been on. more

Perfect City Retreat 5/12/2002

It's hard to believe this awesome park is situated right in the middle of the sprawltropolis known as the Triangle. It's a great respite from all the concrete and parking lots popping up all over the place. The only con: You can still hear the traffic from the beltline. Pros: nice trails Cons: can get crowded more
