Lovely trail!

Perhaps I didn't see it but main area is kid friendly with a tennis court, basketball, picnic and playground for kids. Trail is along back end crossing roads but also has tons of scenic sewage lines/pipes which isnt scenic at all. This is what ruins it for me. Could be a nice paved path for bikers or joggers uninterested in taking photos

Great easy trail that’s perfect for family. The back half of the loop has lots of roots to be careful of.

Clean park, nice trails, friendly people. Will definitely go back.

It was a fun trail to run for me and my dog. This was my first trail run and I thought it had some varied terrain, but nothing too difficult. There is canopy cover for most of the trail, so it’s doable even in the heat. The lake is pretty and there were not that many people on it. I’ll definitely be going back!

quick easy trail.

Awesome for hiking or walking!! Beautiful scenery!

Great trail, my wife and I loved the lake loop. Would recommend for any skill level. Great place to hike in the heat since most of the trail is covered by trees.

This park is one of my favorite parks. It has some back trails that are great for solitude with your dog. The trail around the lake is a bit more rustic with beautiful views. There's usually always events happening at the park on the weekends so it can get a bit crowded. If you looking for some solitude it's best to visit during the evening, week days. If you want to get off land you can rent a canoe, paddle boat or kayak.

Beautiful trails! The houses are beautiful. It’s amazing that it is a city park. Great escape for mid week outing. Perfect to train for rucks.

My favorite for a nice stroll around the lake- today was a little disappointing since part of the trail was submerged due to the heavy rains last night. It is well taken care of by the city and there’s lots of things to do!!

At this moment the trails are now closed due to RDU enforcing their private property and have installed barricades so you can ride/hike but Raleigh is in the process of leasing this land so the trails will be reopen soon, hopefully since I really miss riding those trails.
The 1 STAR is due to RDU and not the trails.

Pretty trail. Relatively flat with a couple of tiny hills but very bumpy. Pretty crowded in the parking lot but the trail was fine.

We enjoyed this 2 mile trail more than we anticipated. Lots of shade in the woods, smaller trails going down to the water along the way, board walks, and bridges. There are a good number of tree roots but that just adds to the hiking experience. The back portion is still under construction but you can get around it.

Nice Trail. It just doesn't finish in a loop. Had to walk back from the DO NOT CROSS sign board, since the trail wasn't complète any further.

Great trail for mountain biking. Some technical stuff, downhill, and roots. Best for a intermediate mountain bikers, there are just some hard parts even for me too get over. Also its convenient because its half a mile from my house.

Very nice trail. Very great ending with a long bridge and marsh on either side of you. From bond park to green level church road is exactly 6 miles and is definitely worth the experience.

Great little 2 mile loop around Bond Lake, can be crowded. Partially paved, crosses about 20 bridges across incoming creeks and drainage ditches to the lake. Some sections have roots, but good for trail running if you watch your steps in the rough sections. Lots to do at Bond Park. Enjoy.

Great for riding, walking or running, the paved Cary Black Creek Greenway provides a lot of variety, including treks along Lake Crabtree, hiking through the woods, a steep up and down hill connector stretch along West Dynastry Drive and access to Godbold Park; recently has been expanded all the way to Bond Park, totaling 7 miles. We've traveled this several times and look forward to more!
