These are exciting times in Raleigh. With about 40 new miles of trail added in five years, the city and its greenway-loving residents are putting the finishing touches on a 117-mile system of greenways that’s not just the largest urban trail network in the state. Raleigh aspires higher. The city’s world- class trail system connects neighborhoods to significant natural, cultural, and commercial attractions forming an alternative transportation system for pedestrians. On top of that, new city parks linked by the trails are being designed to provide a wide range of complementary activities. Now more than ever, Raleigh can be called “the park with a city in it.” Descriptions of the following trails are included: Crabtree Creek Trail; Lake Johnson Trail; Lake Lynn; Shelley Lake/Sertoma Park; Reedy Creek Trail.
