great for a quick walk

Very nice trail in a beautiful nature preserve. The staff was very curious. The hiking was marked well but be careful of the tree roots. Overall a very nice place to get a hike.

please take a trail app. there are some areas at this Trail or poorly marked and could mislead you in a false Direction. My advice is to take a trail app to avoid wasting a lot of Kickback trails

Would be beautiful in the late spring , summer and Fall. Good for dogs and older kids.

Was totally a fun & peaceful trail to enjoy before class.

lots of wildlife, tons of turtles all sunbathing on logs, blue herons walking on the water edge, and toads hopping around in the forest.

Great trail once you get off the pavement. Lots of American Beech, my favorite tree.

Super little loop with good elevation to keep the heart pumping. Plenty of offshoots if you decide to try a diversion.

Love this place and easy to hike

Nice trail. Good loop that connects to a longer trail. You can make it a good 3 mile hike with leisure hiking. I've met 1-3 people each time I've done this hike. Very well covered. Carry a stick; the spiderwebs are prevalent.

Great trail but I'd say it is easy for experienced hikers. It starts and ends on the paved Bicentennial Greenway. A little hard to find the middle hike through the woods along the river but look for the red and white circle markers spaced well through the woods.

Very nice trail. Started out across the street to park where there are bathrooms. The trail started on a paved greenway then turned into the trail. It was shaded well. A couple of other trails run into this one. The trail ended with a short stretch of paved greenway. The trail was very nice to walk my dog on.

1.8 miles around the Piedmont Environmental Center...not particularly scenic and the lake is a bit muddy. Perfectly fine if you are local but nothing to make a special trip for.

Nice trail, now if I can operate this app correctly, practice makes perfect.

good morning walk

Excellent trail for bird watchers to see red-headed woodpeckers, flickers, red-bellied woodpeckers and turtles.

First time here today. We hiked the white trail (1.8 miles) & the blue trail (.7 miles) in a hour & 22 min. Great trail system, well marked and easy to follow. The trails had lots of roots and other things to step over/around. The scenery was beautiful, walking near High Point Lake was a pleasure. We saw plenty of birds, squirrels, ducks and geese. We look forward to coming back to the piedmont enviromental center to hike the rest of the trails & to walk the bicentennial greenway.

I found a digital copy of the trail maps here: (I tried to add it to the photos, but don't think it worked)

Easy access and the lovey rest area are bonuses. The1.9 mile loop was a little harder than we expected, with lots of rocks and roots making the path treacherous in places. Plenty of places for breaks, and an abundance of shade helped. If you have ankle or knee problems, this might not be the path for you, but if you want a good short hike and don't mind uneven terrain, it's worth a go.

Lovely trails and many to choose from! There were noises that sounded like gunshots, however.

I didn't think this was a moderate trail, it was very easy. fun short walk great for kids and dogs!

This is a great network of short trails for hiking with your kids. We have gone several times with our 3 1/2 year old daughter and she loves it and does great. The provided map isnt great, but they are marked pretty well with permanent markers instead of blazes.

I walked with a boy scout troop and we walked 14 miles in and out. I am assuming out walk was longer than listed because it is part of a larger greenway. It has plenty of rest stops, mile markers and a bathroom at the beginning and about 4 miles in near the Jamestown golf course. I am walking this again with my small children (but not 14 miles.. maybe 6)
