Lake Lynn is a man-made lake in North Raleigh with a 2-mile greenway running around the lake, consisting of paved surface and boardwalks. The easy walk around Lake Lynn is a pleasant loop and you're sure to see wildlife, including ducks, geese, herons, turtles and other aquatic life. It's very popular, so don't expect to find solitude. The mixed-use trail accommodates walkers, joggers, dogs (must be on a 6-foot leash), bicyclers, and roller-blades.

Beautiful trail, easily accessible for all.

I have been here multiple times and find it to be very relaxing and a great trail for walking. It does get crowded on the weekends so I usually stick to early mornings here and watch the sun rise.

I walk around Lake Lynn almost every weekday after work, at least during daylight saving time. It's a scenic lakeside hike with many boardwalks across coves in the lake. Besides a great place for exercise, there's a tremendous amount of wildlife at the lake. Ducks and geese are the most common, attracted by the families feeding them bread, but other birds include herons and cormorants, as well as turtles, including snapping turtles.
