A nice, easy greenway loop.

Runner Notes

Watch for heavy traffic when crossing the major intersections, especially Hopson and Louis Stephen Road intersections, as there is no crosswalk. It is best to look both ways, and then walk while crossing four lanes of traffic.

Description

At a little over 3 miles long, this greenway loop makes a nice extension of the Research Triangle Park trail system. The path is paved and there are some small ups and downs along the way, but nothing too challenging. You can also connect to other trails in the greenway system for a longer run.
