this is a crowning achievement for our community. We hope visitors will enjoy this trail. It is worth renting bikes and experiencing it first hand. Beautifully done; some shade for summer and not very hilly for leisure biking.

This trail is a joy to use. I have biked the entire 30+ miles of this trail (except for the small section still under construction). Most of the trail is paved there are a few sections of dirt and a few places where you have to go onto roads. The trail is very well maintained and follows along the Neuse River. It is an easy ride for bicycling - mostly flat with rolling hills. Most of the trail takes you through woods and wetlands. You will see wildlife along the trail: birds, deer, rabbits, groundhogs, snakes, and turtles are just a few that I have seen while bicycling. This is a true gem of the a Raleigh area.

Rode the full trail - had a blast. Trail is in great shape, not too much traffic and shady (important on a hot afternoon)

As visitors to the area, we wanted to experience what the locals liked about living in the area. TripAdvisor ranked this attraction high, #2, so with tennis shoes extracted from the suitcase we headed out to Buffaloe park. Had a little difficulty initially finding the entrance but that didn't stop us. We found the trail and headed down the path. My son was excited that he could ride his penny board while we walked the trail. Smooth pavement - well maintained. Hot day - would have preferred more shade but enjoyed nature all around us. Never quite made it up to the dam - 5.5 miles of walking was enough for us. Recommend this trail to geocachers too. Helped a gentleman find a cache during our walk.

We love this trail and walk different sections of it multiple times during the week. The weekends are a little busy and there are rude bikers who sneak up on you without warning, so keep your ears open for the sound of wheels behind you if it's a crowded day. Lots of wildlife along the way - bring your camera. Also, no facilities so make a pitstop before you start your walk or ride.
