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.

What a beautiful and well maintained trail with a view of the lake for the entire 7 miles! One of my favorites!

Nice trail for a two hour walk around the lake.

My family and I really enjoy this trail. I wouldn't really consider it a "hike" it's mostly flat, with some hills. Perfect for bikes. The trail is wide and easy to maneuver a double jogging stroller also. You can't beat the view either!

7 mile loop is defiantly longer than it sounds. The whole trail is pretty much flat with sandy gravel, with the exception of a few hills here and there. Very pretty views of the lake and some wildlife. NO RESTROOMS anywhere on the 7 mile loop.

Been here multiple times but wouldn't consider this a "hike" trail for it's mostly flat pathway. Many runners and bikers, can become crowded at times but the view is pretty. Also can't stress the bikers enough.

A lovely yet challenging trail. I've run portions of it but this was the first time I'd biked around the whole thing. It was a great workout and the scenery can't be beat!
