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. The estimated cost for the entire project is approximately $30 million.

The 6 separate projects are named Upper Neuse, Neuse Horseshoe Bend, Neuse Buffalo Road, Neuse Hedingham, Neuse Riverview, and South Neuse.

This unique project also opens opportunities to adjoining communities to connect to this central backbone. With the completion of the 28 mile trail and the construction of two other trails, Mingo Creek in Knightdale and Smith Creek in Wake Forest the Capital Area Greenway could become the central structure of a larger system covering North Carolina. The Mountains to Sea Trail (MST), a State of North Carolina linear park, extends from the mountains in western North Carolina at Murfreesboro to the coast of eastern North Carolina at Jockey’s Ridge. The corridor for this trail connects to the Neuse River Trail at Falls Lake Dam. The planned MST then follows the Neuse River Trail through Wake County to the county line.

Neuse River Trail Photos From Daniel Kiechle

From Daniel Kiechle:

“Yesterday, I took a walk along a short portion of the Neuse River Greenway Trail, and when I got home I went on-line to get some information about the trail; that’s how I found your web site. I see that you’re asking visitors for photos, and I did take a few.  From the map I found on your web site, I leaned that Abbotts Creek Trail is part of the same network; I have a few photos from there, taken in the fall of 2011.”

 

Daniel lives in Cannes, France.

Thank you Daniel!

Neuse River Trail Bridge Crossing

Sean Drummond sent these photographs of the new bridge that will cross the Neuse River and Neuse River Greenway at Auburn Knightdale Rd. Amazing work! Thank you Sean.

Attached are the pics Lester Mir took during his ride this weekend. Got into a passing shower so couldn’t take more.

Thanks Lester!

Sunflowers and Transplants on the Neuse River Trail by Paul Baragona

This is breath taking! Both sunflower fields are between NRT mile posts 23 and 24. Best access for pedestrians is the parking lot where Auburn-Knightdale Road crosses the river. It’s less than a one mile walk to both fields.

Great photos Paul! They are breath taking.
