Raleigh Greenway Trail is also known as Simms Branch Trail, part of the Raleigh Capital Area Greenway System. To delineate the two, I added a review for the Durant Nature Preserve on the Simms Branch Trail. The paved Raleigh Greenway is a great walking or biking trail, connecting Cub Trail/Finley Ridge Lane to Leslieshire Drive with one road crossing. The trail slopes down from Cub Trail to Leslieshire... a good access point is from Durant Nature Preserve at the north entrance. The trail follows along Simms Branch which is a nice creek. The shorter part of the trail gets hilly on the east side of Durant Nature Preserve access point. Really good for a bike ride.
