Neuse River greenway trail

Visited my daughter this weekend and took time out to ride some on the Greenway trail. What a nice trail it is. Clean, and smooth and scenic, Can't wait to go back.

Wife and I are local to the area, and couldn’t agree more!! Just did 30 miles there from the capital
greenway at NC Museum of art down to Sam Branch Greenway in Clayton.

We didn't go far as we didn't have a lot of time We went from about mile marker 22 auburnknightdale road to the end in clayton and back. We used to live in clayton and when we retire are hoping to move back around garner so we can be with the daughter's family. Pretty muggy saturday and was surprised the mosquitoes were not a problem.

I love the Neuse River Trail, but it's a bit of a drive to get to. I usually park at Anderson Point Park and then either go south or north to the end and then back. I have not decided which way I like best.

I am very fortunate to be close. I ride simmons branch trail to abbotts creek trail to the neuse River trail all the way to Anderson point and then back. Once I went a little further on the south end of the Crabtree creek trail and it also was beautiful. I need to drive there once and explore that area more.

I was just there this past weekend and walked a little bit on the Neuse trail. Considering moving to the Raleigh area. DC region has gotten way over populated for me.

Ok, where is this bridge on that trail? I was trying to figure it out and never did get to see it.

I've been there, but couldn't tell you exactly where. There are 7 bridges ( 2 of them suspension ) on the 27˝ mile Neuse River Trail. I think the vegitation has grown up quite a bit

Here's a google map link. It's at approximately Mile 13.5 (Mile zero at the dam to the north)

I believe that is the horseshoe farm park bridge. I could be mistaken though.
