Photos taken on January 5th, 2016 at the Falls Lake Dam and my favorite parking spot for the Neuse River Greenway just off of Old Falls of the Neuse Road. I understand that the maximum amount of water without notifying counties east of Wake County is being released.
The Neuse River Trail is a 10-foot wide asphalt path extending from Falls Lake Dam to the Wake County line, a distance of 28 miles. Along the eastern outskirts of Raleigh, the Neuse River Trail follows the river for nearly 28 miles from Falls Lake Dam to the Wake/Johnston County line. There are several river crossings along the way, including two on suspension bridges. The scenic, tree-lined trail offers numerous wildlife viewing opportunities, especially on its boardwalks through wetland areas.
Open to both cyclists and pedestrians, the Neuse River Trail is the longest greenway trail in North Carolina and the longest paved trail between northern Virginia and western Georgia.
