Hiking North Carolina

The bicentennial greenway is a gem in the triad area. While it's annoying how they continue to tear down trees and build around the greenway, it is still a great walk/ride.
The hiking trails around the environmental center are top notch. Aside from being crowded on weekends, you get a sense of seclusion that is rare in the triad, topped only by the bald eagle trail in northwest Greensboro. With all the connectors you are able to create loops of varying lengths. And none of it is strenuous. My favorite parts are the clearing with all the kudzu and the patches of evergreen ground cover.
This is a fantastic urban, paved trail-- 6 miles in length; gently rolling terain, which follows a mildly roaring creek about three miles in. Access is also great with three entry points. Suitable for biking, walking, in-line skating. There are also few day time users.
