Beautiful trails and occasional wildlife (good and bad types)
Sep 2020 • Solo
We are fortunate to have some very nice parks and walking trails here in Cary. I am a regular visitor to Hemlock Bluffs ang highly recommend it as a nice place for a shaded nature walk on very well taken care of mulch trails. This is an especially nice place for walking dogs or for trail running.
As with any nature area you will occasionally see wildlife - including lots of lizards, deer and if really lucky you may see a fox. You may also see scarier wildlife such as snakes. I have been to Hemlock at least 50 times this year, and had never seen a snake... but this past week i saw copperheads on consecutive days. It seems that with the weather change, they are more active, so walkers should be attentive. I highly recommend visiting Hemlock Bluffs, and this is not meant to deter (ill probably go for a walk there later today). But during this season be alert to the trail ahead of you - especially if visiting with a pet or child.

very few hemlocks
Aug 2020
Nice area for a short hike, but we didn't see very many hemlocks. They seem to be dying out. The hikes are very easy.

Always Great Place to Hike and Social Distance
Jun 2020 • Couples
Well maintained and easy to social distance. Enjoyed a wonderful evening hike through many of the trails today on Fathers Day. Well maintained, even during these difficult times. Not at all crowded today. Few was out places need some mulch but overall great job.

Lovely spot for a good walk.

Who knew a rustic couple of walking trails are available so near all that Cary shopping? There walking trail options and much to look at and listen to. Give it a try.

A great local park
Nov 2019
A nice place to take a walk. Good for kids. They have a great little nature center museum, too. Some of the trails have stairs. (I've seen people jogging here, but honestly I wouldn't simply because of the stairs and shorter length of the trails.) The views are nice and kids love it.

One of my favorite spots to stroll.

Soft, mulched trail and plenty of shade. There are a lot of stairs on one side which brings you down into the beautiful bluff. This is a unique spot with plenty of wildlife to see.

Deep in nature in the middle of suburban North Carolina
Jun 2019
The nature center provides a quick guide to animals you might see. The trails are easy to walk on and mulched for comfort underfoot. Although it is only feet from one of the busiest roads in Cary, once on the trails, you can barely hear the traffic. Also a nice place for an old fashioned picnic - carry in, relax, eat, carry out.

Great little nature park that's easily accessible. Beautiful wooded trails with very soft surface for runners. Lots' of highlights for children. Great camps and programs.
