This hike starts at the recreation hub that is the Falls Lake Dam tailrace area. Here adventurers can fish the tailrace, paddle the Neuse River, bicycle the Neuse River Trail greenway, and, of course, hike. This walk takes the Falls Lake Trail from the tailrace area up to the dam visitor center, then travels along the shore of Falls Lake. The return route leads past other trail connections via the Blue Dot Trail and back to the trailhead where you can tack on other adventures.
