Raleigh Walking Trails

Are you trying to be more active this year? If so, you might want to check out some of the walking trails throughout the Raleigh area. Whether you plan on walking, jogging, or running, these trails are great places to get your heart rate up and spend time in nature. Here are a few top trails our real estate agents recommend visiting.

  • Lake Johnson Park: 4601 Avent Ferry Rd., Raleigh, NC 27606
    Lake Johnson Park
     is a scenic 300-acre park with a lake and plenty of green space. There is a 3-mile loop trail that stretches around the park, offering lovely views of the lake, woods, and fields. Most of the trail is paved, but there are some unpaved sections.

    The trail in Lake Johnson Park is open to cyclists, walkers, and runners. It's relatively flat with a few small hills. Leashed dogs are welcome, but owners must clean up after them. One of the best parts of this trail is the boardwalk which stretches across the lake itself. 

  • William B. Umstead State Park: 8801 Glenwood Ave., Raleigh, NC 27617
    You could spend days walking in William B. Umstead State Park and never take the same trail twice! There are 22 miles of hiking trails within the park. Some allow mountain bikes and horses along with walkers.

    One of the best trails to hike in this park is the Sycamore Trail. It runs along Sycamore Creek for 7.2 miles and is nicely shaded. It also connects to other trails, such as the Graylyn Multi-Use Trail. 

  • Black Creek Greenway: 2139 Old Reedy Creek Rd., Cary, NC 27513
    The Black Creek Greenway is one of the longest point-to-point trails in the region. It starts at Old Reedy Creek Rd. and ends in Fred G. Bond Metro Park. There is plenty of parking at both ends of the trail. With a total length of 7.1 miles, this trail winds through woods, past ponds, and even through a few residential areas.

    The Black Creek Greenway connects to the White Oak Creek Greenway in Fred G. Bond Metro Park. This path is 7+ miles long and is convenient to many properties for sale in Cary

  • Neuse River Greenway Trail: 12088 Falls of Neuse Rd., Wake Forest, NC 27587
    If you're looking at homes for sale in Wake Forest, the Neuse River Greenway Trail is just minutes away. This paved greenway stretches for 27.5 miles, starting in North Raleigh and ending at the Wake County Line.

    With suspension bridges, wetlands crossings, and a few boardwalks, this is a very stimulating trail. It is open to cyclists and rollerbladers in addition to walkers and runners.

  • Annie Louise Wilkerson Nature Preserve: 5229 Awls Haven Dr., Raleigh, NC 27614
    This land along Falls Lake was donated to the City of Raleigh in 2006. It has since been developed into a nature preserve where you can admire native plants and animals. There are three trails within the park. All three are loops, so you don't have to worry about getting lost.

    The Annie Louise Wilkerson Nature Preserve is closed on Mondays and is only open until 7:30 the rest of the week, so plan your walk accordingly.
