Lake Lynn is a man-made lake in North Raleigh with a 2-mile greenway running around the lake, consisting of paved surface and boardwalks. The easy walk around Lake Lynn is a pleasant loop and you're sure to see wildlife, including ducks, geese, herons, turtles and other aquatic life. It's very popular, so don't expect to find solitude. The mixed-use trail accommodates walkers, joggers, dogs (must be on a 6-foot leash), bicyclers, and roller-blades.

Easy trail...the whole thing is either paved or wooden boardwalks. A lot of shade which is nice. Quite a few walkers, joggers and bike riders but the trail is long enough not to feel crowded.

Well maintained trail, can take jogging strollers and dogs/kids friendly. Make sure to have the bug repellent on before start.

I brought my dog here and it was a super easy walk but allowed her to get plenty of exercise! It would also be a great place to go running!

Wonderful morning hike here last weekend. Early in the morning it is beautiful with only a few people, but later in the day it is very popular. Easy hike for all experience levels.

I have been here multiple times and find it to be very relaxing and a great trail for walking. It does get crowded on the weekends so I usually stick to early mornings here and watch the sun rise.

I walk around Lake Lynn almost every weekday after work, at least during daylight saving time. It's a scenic lakeside hike with many boardwalks across coves in the lake. Besides a great place for exercise, there's a tremendous amount of wildlife at the lake. Ducks and geese are the most common, attracted by the families feeding them bread, but other birds include herons and cormorants, as well as turtles, including snapping turtles.
