There are multiple walking trails at Anderson Creek Park. This one is the North Prong Loop. It's 1.3 miles and easy to walk. It does go into a swampy area and has potential for a lot of bugs/mosquitos in the summer time. In the most muddy/wet areas they have raised wood walking path over the hazard.

A nice walk with two kids and my wife. not much to see or experience. Don't go out of your way to visit, but not bad if you live within 15 miles

Huge waterfall, the largest East of the Rockies. Easy paved path to the falls top viewing and then nice stairs to the lower viewing deck . Not really a hike. It was very popular with children and families today. I only went down to the lower viewing deck bc you can’t see the falls if you go any further.

An easy walk. The full circle around the lake is 3.8 miles. Good place to run.

Family stopped for restroom break. Saw about 15 elk, really cool experience.

nice clean easy restful walk.

excellent paved trail for hiking and biking

We were in town and mom took me for a unexpected walk. It was fun but it was sidewalks and I like natural trails better. It was too cold out for mom so it was a short walk. They were doing a lot of maintenance work so it wasn’t scenic. I need to go back when mom’s not cold & the construction workers aren’t there.

Great trail but the natural part is quite roots w narrow path

Beautiful falls but very crowded at times. It’s right off the road and you can pull over and see the falls without even walking down. I’ve been once and had no one around. I got lucky I guess! Beautiful places are popular for a reason though.


Absolutely gorgeous waterfall!

We continued on and did the art to heart trail. It's an enjoyable run/walk because you get some unique things to look at, and there are some solid hills in there too.

Paved loop trail, decent for running or walking.

Beautiful waterfall

Gate was closed when we went. probably because of lots of fallen trees blocking the paths. Kayak pier is also broken.

Wow! Awesome hike to a sprawling bald. Low effort, high yield. Just be prepared for hoards of people at the top on a nice day. Fortunately there are off-shoots and other trails in the vicinity you can explore to get away from the crowds. Definitely would do again, and would plan a camping trip to see sunrise from there.

To call it a mountain is a stretch and there’s not much of a view at the top but it’s a nice last minute hike. Very easy and well marked and if they actually build the observation tower mentioned, it would be cool. Connecting it to the end of Moonshine run to make it a loop would be nice.

This a great family oriented walk. Very wide well maintained trails. Part paved and part small gravel. Excellent place to get outside even in wet weather as the trail drains well and isn’t muddy. Better in the cool months as the bugs can be bad in warm weather months.


Great Wall with the kids. It’s paved all the way so it’s excellent for little ones that need a stroller. We saw plenty of people on bikes and it truly is a great biking trail. I highly recommend it to parents. You start at a children’s park and end at another children’s park. It allows you to take a break while the kids play at the park so you can walk back to your vehicle. The trail does get flooded during the rain season so that’s why I deducted one star.

Easy walking trail with beautiful falls

This place is one of my absolute favorite! I did an overnight backpacking trip here and the view was beyond breathtaking. My now fiancé also proposed here at sunset and it was so dreamy! The hike isn’t bad and only took 15 minutes to get to the top. I would recommend wearing boots as it can be a little muddy.

So beautiful even in the winter. I can not wait to make this a monthly hike to see the changes. just over 2 miles of trails and flowers.

Very easy trail but was pretty muddy and hurricane Florence effects are still apparent with certain paths impassable. But we enjoyed it. A very nice boardwalk. Also nice to have benches and toilets there.

Great walk around the lake on mostly paved side walks with great views of the surrounding mountains. Easy walk for a family and to take the dog out for a bit.

Nice stroll along a paved greenway loop around the main section of Cary Park Lake. Saw a great heron. Good for bikers, strollers, kids, dog-walkers, trail runners. Connects with other greenways.

Paved greenway between Kelly Road and Apex Jaycee Parks along Beaver Creek, through wooded flood plains and alongside and through neighborhoods. Can be underwater in spots after heavy rains and some areas get muddy. Moderately crowded with dog-walkers, bikers and trail runners.

great trail for just hiking through woods. there's a short part that's a loop around the park pond. it's on the moderate side of easy. has some up and downs but nothing bad.
