The Neuse River trail is a great add to the Wake County Parks system. This is a great place to walk, or ride bikes. The fact that it runs along the Neuse River makes the trail relatively easy with only small hills. It also makes it really pretty along the river. they have built several pedestrian bridges that cross the river where needed.
The trail has a gap at Horseshoe Park that is not easy to go around.
The trail can flood when there is lots of rain.
The trail goes along a main sewer line, so you may have some places or times when you get minor scents of the sewer. (but it is not a real problem)
But overall, this is a great place to get some exercise. There are multiple parking areas along the trail where you can access the trail. The easiest one to find may be the parking area at the base of Falls Lake Dam.
