Love this walk. My sister lives in the neighborhood and we walked it the other day!

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.

Great small hike around a quiet lake. Great for any skill level.

This is one of my favorite spots!

Nice short trail leading to the overlooks.

Nice trail, looks family and dog friendly. Did not do the Pirates Cove section, instead went over US1 to the end of Hinshaw.

Did it combined with Swift Creek Greenway. Nice walk with the creek and lake throughout.

Did it combined with Symphony Lake Greenway. Nice walk with the creek and lake throughout.

paved greenways connected by 2 residential sts. mostly wooded, but nothing special. playground off Hinshaw greenway. I didn't go over, but there is an overpass over hwy 64.

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 trail takes you down to a nice loop below the bluffs and along Swift Creek. It is a combination of both boardwalks and a well maintained natural trail.

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

Nice short paved short loop trail around quiet Symphony Lake in Regency Park. Great for picnics, watching fireworks, or listening to local concerts, connects with Swift Creek Trails. Also great for a short run. There is also a good chance you'll run into the local flock of geese along the route.

Nice flat loop to walk, run, ride bikes. See heron, ducks, turtles, and more. Beware if events are going on at adjacent Koka Booth Amphitheater, they may close that half of the loop but you can go around.

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! Nice easy paved trail. Lots of wildlife to see and birds.

The trail is paved with a couple bridges, the bridges are very well kept.
The trail could have used a bench or two. It's not a loop, and there's no parking provided. There's a church next to the trail head that I used to park, don't know how the church feels about it, but there's not a "no parking" sign.

Great 2.5 mile paved stroll with a few inclines along two beautiful oak, beech and maple forested greenway trails, paralleling two creeks.During all seasons the trees are inspiring. A peaceful scenic walk and good workout within the city, lots of dog walkers, some bicycles, mostly just those of us who enjoy a hike in the woods. Highly recommend this if you're in Cary!
