It's kind of boring unless you're just hanging out with friends and you need some air or somewhere to walk.

Went on a snowy day in January. The Lucas Grist Mill looked like a wonderful anachronism covered in snow. I'll definitely be back.

Average trail. Nothing interesting on the trail. Andrew Jackson museum was good, though.

Great for bikes,many paved and dirt & gravel roads suitable for hybrid or mountain bikes. Trails are wide to allow for both walkers & bikes comfortably. Mostly even ground ,many switch backs,lots of space to romp around in. Small lake. Both shaded and open areas.

Good for biking - I think a hike would get a little boring. Most of it is paved - with the exception being the connecting portion between the two greenways. Goes right underneath I-485, which is kinda neat. Good for the kids - but very crowded at times!

This trail is great if you aren't able to leave the city but still want to get out and move. The trails are really well maintained. After about 10am things can get a little crowed, but most places the trail is wide enough to pass without any problems
