Nice quiet greenway, can be accessed on Hwy 54 near Northwoods Elementary at the intersection of Hwy 54 and Boundary St. or a better access is next to either the Godbold Park Dog Park (paved) or behind the Godbold tennis courts and playground (dirt path off the circle). Goes behind neighborhoods and features a couple of bridges.

Nice but it is private property and your suppose to be accompanied by a resident of the neighborhood. So don’t make a special trip.

This is one of my favorite spots!

Nice short trail leading to the overlooks.

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.

greenway goes back and forth over busy roads . sometimes hard to follow. part along creek is scenic. we started at Bond park. paved.

This is a very short overlook trail off the Beech Tree Cove Trail. Unfortunately the view from the top of the bluff was limited when I visited in Late September. It definitely would be better after the leaves fall.

This is a short loop off the Chestnut Oak Loop Trail, with access to two bluff overlooks.

This is a very well maintained and pretty walk through the woods.

Nice, peaceful walk in the Lochmere subdivision in Cary, NC; great for a 1.1 mile run, reserved for Lochmere residents only. For those living in Lochmere, this is great for a morning walk or a way to unwind after your work day. Enjoy.

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 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!
