“Section 1 of the Falls Lake Trail leading from the dam at Falls of Neuse Road to Raven Ridge Road.”— Justin Paul
The trail crosses a road twice and then heads down some wooden steps towards the lake shore and follows the shore mostly south. The trail passes a clearing and then winds around a couple of coves. In about 2.5 miles, a spur trail leads to Annie Louise Wilkerson, MD Nature Preserve, a City of Raleigh park.
Past here, the trail follows a rocky tributary of Honeycutt Creek and then follows Honeycutt Creek up to the bridge on Raven Ridge Road, which is the end of Section 1.
