The trail and scenery was great! My only complaint was that there was not signage at intersections of other trails to guide you. We were looking for Quarry Park and found it but did not find the bike trail that led there until we had rode there on the main road.

Nice easy ride. Will be coming back!

Nice trail. Very crowded at times but everyone is mostly friendly. Most of the bikers are good and give u commands and of course some are rude and come very close because they dont want to hit their brakes. Its hard to fix stupidity! Not the trails fault and I will keep going back

It’s good

Great exercise trail

Very nice and easy walking. Long but easy!!

wonderful trail in the shade!

This is a very nice loop around the lake. The trail is wide and nice lake views.

This lakeside trail is beautiful in every season. It is long enough to use for long distance training and wide enough to accommodate it's popularity with 2 separate bathrooms located about halfway around the lake on either side. With all its amenities, it still feels very natural and remote throughout most of the trail. We always see lots of bird varieties, the occasional snake or deer and many turtles sunning themselves on logs. This is a favorite trail that we try to take in at least once per season. It is mainly flat with a few small inclines.

great trail. Salem Creek Greenway is a nice way to get there from Marketplace Mall

Lovely bike train and it is for the most part shaded, loved biking along the lake for the entire ride. Kids loved it, saw wild bird, water snakes and turtles, fish and many happy faces enjoying the outdoors.

Rode bike on new Long Branch Trial starting at Martin Luther King Blvd in Winston Salem to Salem Creek Greenway

One of the best trails for any length of run. Soft surface full loop 7 miles, with markers along the way. Not super hilly however it’s definitely not pancake flat.

I think you can see good wildlife at Salem Lake and good trails and great for bikers hikers dogs and more great stuff at Salem Lake

I don't personally like this trail due to how heavily trafficked it is but I do believe it is a great place for dogs, children, or running. It is very easy regardless of the length you travel

Easy going. Quiet walk in the City of WS.

Great trail for hiking and cycling. A huge advantage is that it is shady most of the way!

Today was my first time running the Salem Lake Trail. It's great for running if you need a break from tripping on roots. I parked at the access off Linville and was pleased that they have clean, functioning restrooms there. Bikers, walkers and runners on the trail but it wasn't packed. Everyone seemed considerate of each other and I will definitely go back. Loved being able to run being surrounded by nature but also having a more groomed trail (crushed gravel) which allowed me to listen to music for once. Hardly any traffic noise. For a city park, great peace with distance.

Amazing, easy running trail. Winston-Salem parks department keeps this trail in great shape. I’ve lost track of the number of times of I’ve run this trail.

Peaceful and serene. It's like heading out to the mountains without actually having to drive to the mountains. This is my favorite place to jog in Winston. It's also fun (and rewarding) to bime the Greenway from downtown to the lake, even on my road bike. (I hear there are a lot of great mountain biking trails around the lake, too).

We like to bike from downtown to Salem Lake via the Greenway. A great way to spend the afternoon outdoors without having to drive to the mountains.
