Great trail for beginners. The Carolina Trail by itself is super easy. Small hill on Running Cedar Rd but still easy. Definitely make your way to Bent Creek Trail. It’s also easy but has the best scenery by the creek and provides benches if you want to rest and take it all in.

I would recommend running on this trail. It is very nice with convenient connections to both Bent Creek Road and the Gardens at the arboretum, because of this it is a really convenient way to connect to longer trails such as Hard Times Road.

I highly recommend this trail for anyone wanting a moderate hiking trail with a beautiful destination. The well maintained trail winds through the woods and leads to the NC Arboretum.

A favorite of ours; good for my 5yr old.

Nice trail. Easy for my elderly mastiff to amble. Better signage would be nice, as there are several trails and we managed to hit every single one, so the 1-2 miles we had planned became over 8 since I give a poor sense of direction and apparently my map-reading skills are poor. Still, it was a very enjoyable afternoon.

A nice nature trail inside the beautiful NC Arboretum, with interpretive displays and including a little elevation change.
