Biking this trail was one of the highlights of our vacation. This is a well maintained bike path where you can ride all day long. You will meet many friendly walkers, runners and cyclists along the way. Convenient stops for facilities and water along the way but pack some water for your trip.

This is an about 22 mile trail that is mostly paved and very well marked. There is only about 6 miles of gravel trail but still was fine with my bike. Took me about 2 hours to complete. There are some hills so I would say beginner to immediate.

The ATT is a big old trail that used to be a railroad line. Dog/bike/horse friendly, even when it's crowded it's so large it's no issue. There are benches along the way, which is nice. I like the lower trail with it's natural chip/pine trail. Up in Durham it is move paved and residential.

This is a paved trail. It covers over 20 miles between Apex and Durham. It was how they transported tobacco leaves to markets. It's a lively peaceful walk and you can do any part of it.

We’ve been in Apex for twenty years and never been here. It’s a beautiful unspoiled trail. It’s for bikes, horses and pedestrians. The trails are paved and very smooth. We were there on a Monday and met only three people. Would be a great walk for kids. Bathrooms were clean.

Definitely a great trail to bike/walk/run. Does get very busy on weekends. Please use your bike etiquette to let folks know you are passing.

I almost hate to rate this so highly...I want to keep this gem to myself. The ATT travels 22 miles from Apex, near Jordan Lake, to the Tobacco District and Durham Bulls' Stadium in Durham. There are several tributary trails (White Oak Creek) and restroom facilities a few miles apart along the trail. Biking, hiking, jogging, blading...it's a great trail (partly paved, partly packed dirt.) One word of caution: While some of the road crossings are signaled, several are not. Keep your eyes and ears open when crossing traffic.

Area is great for hikes, bike rides, and runs. You will often see horses and dog walkers as well. As one of the go to after work places for workouts, there are multiple groups that utilize the trails.
