Sort of boring except for the part that goes up the hill and through the woods. And the parking lot is easy to miss. but it's nearby for me and can be done in an hour plus.

Love to walk this trail along with fan branch to get about 5 miles. It is beautiful and not heavily populated. It is great to do with kids as there are 2 parks of off fan branch trail so the kids can play.

Easy hike. I use it as a running trail so you'd have to watch the small rocks and roots of the trees. on the trail. Very versatile trail in a forest, so shades, with a creek alongside the trail. I'd recommend it.

Bad trail signs so a little confusing but great walk. Varies between gravel and dirt in different sections. Great for dogs

My kids love this hike because there are multiple playgrounds to stop at along the way. Besides the Wilson Park playground at the start/finish, there area couple of "hidden" playgrounds in the forest along Bolin Creek (built by the local neighborhood HOAs but not highly trafficked). Carolina North Forest is huge; you can walk for 1-2 miles or you can walk for 6-10, depending on your route and how many side trail loops you want to add.

Short trail leading to a large meadow. Nice place to picnic or relax.

Short path but really nice. I saw deer grazing in the forest when I ran by.
