Now that North Carolina is beginning to ease lockdown, I'm thinking about riding the American Tobacco Trail. Does anyone know if it's being used much now?

I had been riding the ATT at least 3x per week; however I have been avoiding it since late March. Just a bit too crowded for my taste. I've heard reports from friends who use it to commute to their jobs, that early in the morning it is not so bad and also that Mile 0 to Mile 5 were less crowded. The areas down in Wake County seemed to have the most crowds.

I've also heard that it's been a bit crowded and am avoiding it for now. Which is much easier to do, since I no longer commute anywhere.
