the directions are NOT correct. They led us into an apartment complex and someone's driveway. it received one star because i couldn't leave a comment without it.

2803B Richard Dr Greenville, NC 27834 United States Trail entrance is pretty hard to find online so here’s the address I pinged on my GPS when we found it. Make sure to veer right and stay close to the lake or else you’re going to have to tread through bull dozed earth. Actual trail is overgrown and in much need of some bush wacking. Wear boots.

There is no designated parking space, and I would recommend to park at the end of the no name street next to the corn field. Much better than parking on Richard drive. The trail goes around lake and this is pretty. However the trail path is not cleaned in many parts which makes the trail with moderate difficulty. Bring tracking polls and be ready to clean your way through overgrown vegetation. It would be nice to fish but there is sign “no fishing”. This is a nice quiet trail with rich bird wild life in the middle of a busy city.
