“Ran a 5k here”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Great place to run as it's on finely packed gravel/dirt. I haven't done anything else here. It's a long trail.

“Great for Biking”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

We have enjoyed biking the along the American Toboacco Trail many times. It is well-maintained and follows an old train bed so it does not have many hills. Some parts are paved and some parts are cinder tracked, but are not difficult. There are places to get on or off the trail along the route and ample parking. It makes for a great time for family and friends!

“Easy cycling”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Love this trail for cyclig because trail is easy to follow and you can go as long as you'd like. Etiquette is good here too. Clean facilities, pretty easy to park most of the time.

“Always fun but sometimes crowded”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Great place to run and bike, or just take a nice walk. Just watch out for the cars at the road crossings.

“Great place for a walk,jog or a run”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

I have been here a couple of times for a bike ride and just plain walking. It is lined with trees so looks pretty nice and stays cool when it is sunny. Some portions are paved while others are hard trails. Lot of people use this to practice for marathons and biking. I liked it for a nice peaceful walk in the nature.
Note: I have heard the northern part of the trail near Durham/Hwy 40 can be unsafe in late evenings, but never been to those parts.
Note: Most entry points have parking lots and restrooms and nothing much more. I expected more picnic tables and such...
