Great for walking or cycling. The goofy real cyclists in their silly outfits go a bit too fast, but everyone gets along. From the dam to the soccer fields is most crowded, going lower is fun.

You can bicycle ride over 40 miles one way on this trail. It's easy riding with almost no elevation changes along the way. Beautiful scenery along the river. A number of parking/entry spots along the way. This is a real jewel in the Raleigh area.

No loop on the Neuse trail but you can start at Anderson Point and take the Crabtree Creek trail and it loops around by Crabtree where you join another trail and then onto Walnut Creek Trail and back to Anderson Point. Last... More
