Various paved and unpaved trails that loop around and through art and nature exhibits. The Southern paved portion is the Reedy Creek Trail which connects to the House Creek Greenway Trail and is known as the scenic walking bridge that spans I-440 at Wade Avenue. Trails range from an easy 1-mile paved loop to a hilly 2-mile out-and-back (see map link for details). Bikes are only allowed on the paved trails. Construction is underway for the Blue Loop Trail; scheduled to open in the Spring of 2013.

This a place that has expanded significantly in the last decade. While it is an easy paved walk predominantly, it is the most interesting & charming city trail in Raleigh.

This is a nice scenic walk. Perfect if you want to get in a quick walk or run. Great for dogs and strollers. The last sculptures are fun to look at but am surprised that the grounds aren't better maintained. Maybe that's do to the time of year?

Would be ideal for post brunch or after dinner date walk.

With sculpture scattered throughout, it is a moderate short walk with access to the greenway. Beautiful any time of year!

Had to get out during a warm winter day to bike ride from the NC Museum of Art to House Creek and Crabtree Creek greenways. The art museum is a great place to visit inside or out; always something new and interesting to ponder. Enjoy!

This is one of my favorite places to go in the area. The trails and art over the landscape are wonderful.
