If you follow the directions, this trail starts at an apartment complex with "No Trespsassing" signs everywhere and you have to go down a hill in between two buildings to get to the greenway. Once you get to the greenway it's pleasant and fine, but I can't really recommend this "trail" since you might get your car towed.

Nice well maintained paved trail thay goes around a little lake. I went on a Monday afternoon around 1:30 and it was pretty busy. Lots of dog walkers and walkers in general. Just a few bikers and joggers. I would do it again but definitely not during peak hours.

Unfortunately we hiked this trail 2 days after a storm so the trail was muddy and parts were more or less washed out. This was moderate difficulty as far as terrain goes however the navigation was frustrating since there was basically no markings.

One of my favorite in a river trails. If you didn’t know any better do you think you were in the mountains.

Pleasant walk

Very brown not very colorful

on Laurel River Trail

Pretty trek along the Laurel River. The out and back trail is flat the entire way. some building ruins followed by a good picnic spot where the confluence is. Rocky river scenery and kayakers along the way.

Decent trail. Some inclines/declines. Well-maintained. Easy trail. Pleasant walk. I like this one the most of the trails at Cliffs of the Neuse.

There were some good inclines and declines, but the trail was very short. Shorter than the map suggested. I don’t know if it’s been modified due to changes in the river or I just missed something.

A nice trail for a walk or jog. A little damp in places this morning but it was in great shape overall. Our 3-year-old and our pup had a blast checking out the geese.

easy and nice views of the water

We accidentally followed this trail when hiking Cove, Cedar and Chestnut because of the poor trailhead markers. It was fine though and we enjoyed this part of the hike quite a bit.

moderate traffic - definitely abide by the dogs on leash rule because a lot of locals will check you. Great scenery and very well maintained trails and markers.

Beautiful day for this loop trail! River shimmering, path covered with fall leaves and almost has the place to ourselves! One of my favorites!!

This trail was very nice with some great by the river spots. The trail had lots of leaves, and some were covering large rocks. If you want to go on this trail, I suggest stable boots/sneakers so you don’t twist or sprain anything. It was mostly flat, but some of it was on a hill. There were lots of dogs, and a wide path for walking with groups. When you enter the trail, there was a wobbly bridge over the water but it was still stable. Overall, it was a pretty trail that wasn’t too hard but made you exercise. I would definitely recommend!
