Pretty busy during the weekend but it is a nice easy trail with fine gravel and flat all the way. Good for a stroll outdoor if you don't mind all the bicycle passing.

The length & width of this trail makes for a very enjoyable place to walk or ride bicycles. Very level without any major inclines to test your strength or endurance. Very pleasant area lined with trees.

Really nice, shady walking trail away from cars. It is not very crowded so it's not recommended for someone walking alone without a friend.

Fantastic walking, running, and biking trail, cutting through the triangle. Flat, well maintained, and cool. Great place to walk your pets while taking in the beatiful scenery of North Carolina. Be sure to follow the "rules of the road" and let your fellow travelers know you are coming up on them!

The American Tobacco Trial is quiet, scenic, and a very easy hike, run or bike ride because it is almost flat. The trail winds though miles of forests and swamps with lots of shade and breezes.

Grab your back pack, bike, water and snacks and head for the American Tobacco Trail. This trail is twenty two miles of outdoor fun. It is great for the bicycle enthusiast, walker or hiker in you. It is also a fun family day out. There are limited bathroom facilities.

Quicky run!; I had about 2hrs before a flight out of Raleigh, so i stopped in Bull City Running Company, grabbed some shoes, and hit this trail since it runs about 25 yards behind the store. It's paved, but there's usually a gravel area off to the side that trail runners will like. A little urban in spots, but it... More

The trail was built on the old railroad bed that the American Tobacco Co. used primarily to move cured tobacco from the rural areas to be processed in Durham. It is an excellent place to walk, run, bike, or ride a horse. At least two of the parking areas can accommodate horse trailers. You can get details on the website.... More
