Great trail on a perfect day. The wildlife and birding following the water is fantastic. Took about 3.5-4 hours to complete, we packed lunch and stopped for a picnic en route. I took my parents along and they had no problem with the trail at all and said they will be back to do it again!

Wonderful trail. Nice cool forested walk on a 90 degree day. Beautiful creek follows much of the trail. Lots of ups and downs to keep it interesting.

Nice trail

This is a very nice part of Falls lake. The trail has a few good spots for bank fishing if you are able to take your rod. I caught a couple white bass not too far from the trail entrance at Ravensridge road. I was not able to complete the trail all the way to Falls Dam but I will go again soon.

Despite it's short length this is a nice trail. You can tell that some thought was put into the design and development of it with the features that were built to preserve the trail. It's well packed clay like dirty with roots and rocks. There aren't many steep climbs and as a result the trail has a really nice flow to it. Gradual inclines and pump track like flats and declines. Because it can be ridden really fast you have to stay aware of oncoming traffic. As such, keeping your head on a swivel can be as mentally taxing as it is physical. There is one nice rock garden that last for about 100-150 feet with some alternative paths through it.

take “forest loop” trail when arrive. follow mountains to see trail & take a left toward raven ridge trailhead to find the river/lake!

I love this trail. ive seen turtles, deer, and birds. very scenic and offers a good work out. took kids the last time and they said it was a hard hike for them (she's 8 and 11). they loved the teepees and rocks they can climb.

Fun trail with some very steep, short hills. Creek runs near trail much of the way. I could see myself having a blast down in the creek as a child. The trail is paved at the Honeycutt Park end, so if you start the, don't be discouraged. It will eventually become a rustic trail.

Honeycutt Creek Greenway Trail is a very lightly trafficked, wooded trail connecting Honeycutt Park in the south to the Mountain-to-Sea Trail in the north. This is a mutli-use trail that cuts across state gamelands, and bow hunting is permitted at various times in the year. Blaze orange is recommended during hunting season. The city provides reflective orange vests to anyone wishing to hike the trail. They are located in steel boxes at the Durant Road and Raven Ridge Road trailheads. The trail is natural surface and very well maintained, with several new bridges along the path.

There is plenty of parking at Honeycutt park. There is also a large gravel pull-off area to park at the Raven Ridge trailhead. Virtually no one uses this section of trail, so you can enjoy a very quiet trek through the woods.

Relatively new preserve with a few loop trails, and connects to the Mountains to Sea trail. It has a natural play area for children and lots of enrichment and educational programs. I took my 6 year old and we took a pretty easy hike through the Epp forested trail, over some meadow and then to see turtles by the pond.
