“Great State Park to feel away from it all in the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2010

Umstead park is a scenic and large state park close to Raleigh and Durham. It features great hiking trails, biking trails, picnic tables & pavilions, camping spots and even horeback riding trails.

There are various levels & lengths of trails to suit any desire. We go hiking there with small children, we see runners running the trails, even day hikers.

If you are looking for a good recreational option while in Raleigh or Durham, check Umstead out.
