We are newcomers to biking the Greenway Trails and this one is excellent ,smooth pavement with no obnoxious treatment plant odor like the first trail we took.
You cannot rely on your GPS to find the parking lots listed on the large trail map so this may be an obstacle to newcomers and visitors to Raleigh . Even tough for native residents at first !
I would like to see a Parks booklet produced ,showing trailhead locations by mini map inserts to save time locating them. eg Morganton NC 's Greenway parking locations is very clear .Their Greenway is short but beautiful running parallel to the Catawba River.
I would not recommend the Crabtree trail,broken pavement , insect hatches and dark areas under Glenwood a security concern.
