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

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.

good morning walk

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.

Nice walking trail without a lot of other people walking on it on a late November Saturday.

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)

Very nice, quiet hike. I walk regularly and have seen a variety of wildlife.

I regularly hike and run the Deep River trail. It's a great escape for my weekly trail fix and it's 5 minutes from my house. Great views of the lake, awesome groves of pine trees, and great fall color are things to expect on this trail.

Great hiking spot for a quick excursion with the kids. Much of the trail runs along High Point City Lake so there is ample opportunity to spot heron, osprey, beaver, and the occasional bald eagle.

It's a great collection of trails if you just want to get a good run in after work! I pretty much go daily. I love the white and blue trails, which run a good distance beside High Point lake. Pretty scenery. I've run into a few deer and turtles on the trail, so it's always exciting. Always sounds serene, which is ideal. You do have to leap over a few trees now and then, but I think that's the fun part. Just don't trip and fall! And there is also a pretty good variety of incline/decline. It's not flat all the way through.

Also, all of the trails are pretty much lost in the trees and shady (so cooler)--which is perfect when it's ridiculously hot and sunny!

There are a decent number of runners that use the trail daily, but there are also couples who just come to slowly hike, walk it, if you want a less strenuous evening. There are also a few shorter trails and a paved "Greenway" trail for bikes or those who'd rather walk on pavement.
