Nice easy trail for young children or pregnant adults.

Disagree about the "all skill levels", but is great for a weekend run or ride. Great spot for families. Connects Durant nature park.

Loveee this trail! You see so many cool things along the way! Worth it and quite a work out!

It is a black topped trail, great for all ages to get out and enjoy the outdoors.

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.
