Runner Notes

This is a well-maintained new trail, that is easy for walking and running. However, some cyclist think the trail is a racetrack. Be very careful when traveling from Crabtree Valley Mall to the bridge that crosses over I-440. At times cyclist are not looking for runners. Watch out for blind turns, and always stay to the right of the trail.

Description

This is a very hilly trail, if running, cycling, or walking from Crabtree Mall to the NC Museum of Art. Despite the growth of condominiums and upscale apartments, it is a very picturesque and quiet trail making for a pleasant run.

Flora & Fauna

No flowers. Plenty of Hardwood trees, Kudzu, and views of House Creek.
