Trail shared by Keith Buchanan

A nice 1.5-mile nature trail around Lake Raleigh.

Description

This 1.5-mile trail offers a nice nature trail around half of Lake Raleigh to be joined by the Raleigh Greenway paved paths system. Along the way, there is a nice surprise rock out cropping about half way around the Lake. Further on is a small creek crossing over some fallen trees. This crossing will lead to the Greenway paved trail system and allow you to complete the circuit.
