Great paved trail for a little stroll.

on Lake Pine Loop

16 hours ago

Great trail for everything from hiking, running, and family walks. 2 mile paved loop, with a nice dirt trail close to the lake.

Very nice trail. It is well maintained, the path is wide enough for two small groups to easily pass each other head-on while walking/running 2 abreast. The walking path is covered with mulch most of the way, so runners have a soft, but firm surface that removes some of the body pounding of the activity. The one shortcoming of the route is that while it is possible now to make a complete loop around the lake, which is contrary to what some of the online brochures state, one has to run/walk next to the busy road for a little less than a quarter mile on the part of the trail that crosses the dam, near the park entrance. That was the bad news. The good news is that while walking along that part of the path, one can see the very nice path that will soon cut through the woods and remove the necessity of walking next to the road to complete a loop.

Great walking trail

by far my favorite trail in holly Springs!!! beautifully maintained and spacious. park does not open until 8am however.

Love this walk. My sister lives in the neighborhood and we walked it the other day!

heavily trafficked and difficult to maneuver around pedestrians. Pro is that there is a lot of dogs. Khan is that everything smells like pee LOL

Lovely wooded paved trail .. beautiful loop around a lake .. nice place for a picnic date ... it connects either Raleigh greenway

Wonderful trails with so much to see both man-made and natural. Fun to explore. Always clean and well taken care of. Beautiful area.

Clean park, nice trails, friendly people. Will definitely go back.

We had 4 kids under 6 years old, the trail was not only informative and scenic enough for them, but the adults too! There are multiple trails which you can choose from to vary your distances too. Very clean and we’ll maintained.

It was a fun trail to run for me and my dog. This was my first trail run and I thought it had some varied terrain, but nothing too difficult. There is canopy cover for most of the trail, so it’s doable even in the heat. The lake is pretty and there were not that many people on it. I’ll definitely be going back!

Unless you are using it as an access point to the neuse trail, don't bother. Too confusing and tends to be rather trashed in spots.

Did this combined with symphony lake. Great hike, with easy walking. Recommend for any skill level.

One of my favorite places to walk. The new NCMA Park is beautifully designed and welcoming. Plenty of paths/trails to walk on even when it’s busy. And you get to look at art for free! Only issue right now is that there are no restrooms outside, so when the museum is closed there are no restrooms in the park. Hopefully that will be fixed soon.

Good trail to walk for exercise. Not a hiking trail per-se as it is paved more like a park trail, but great for walking and running. The back part of the trail near I-440 gets intense with some pretty big hills so be prepared. Great views of the lake and woods.

Love this area, great for child and pet friendly hikes. Short, well maintained loop. Decent for local biking, but lots of geocaching so keep your head up!

quick easy trail.

Easy trail...the whole thing is either paved or wooden boardwalks. A lot of shade which is nice. Quite a few walkers, joggers and bike riders but the trail is long enough not to feel crowded.

Awesome for hiking or walking!! Beautiful scenery!

Puppy was scared of the bridge, but what a great view!

Best sunsets in Raleigh! This is a fun jog/hike that doesn’t take much time at all. Weekends are always more heavily trafficked but that just means more dogs to pet.

Nice 2 mile paved trail around the lake. The trail itself is easy and wide enough for passing foot track and bicyclists. It has restrooms and offers scented doggy bags through the trail. I have found it to be most busy in the morning into the early afternoon with joggers and swift walkers. Best time I've discovered to go with less traffic is around happy hour, apparently priorities change in NC as the day goes on :) Its a great trail if you want a glimpse of wildlife. I've seen deer, otters, loons, cranes, and turtles near the bank. It also has a couple of nature trails off of the paved trail if you're one of those, as I am, who desire to take the path less traveled.

Great trail, my wife and I loved the lake loop. Would recommend for any skill level. Great place to hike in the heat since most of the trail is covered by trees.

This park is one of my favorite parks. It has some back trails that are great for solitude with your dog. The trail around the lake is a bit more rustic with beautiful views. There's usually always events happening at the park on the weekends so it can get a bit crowded. If you looking for some solitude it's best to visit during the evening, week days. If you want to get off land you can rent a canoe, paddle boat or kayak.

as far as rail trails go, I thought this was a nice one. It is shaded in most places which is nice in the hot sun around here. It was quiet and I didn't find it boring or creepy. Did 3 miles with the dog. Did see quite a few people but they were far between so it didn't feel like a busy trail.

Well maintained trail, can take jogging strollers and dogs/kids friendly. Make sure to have the bug repellent on before start.
