Lake Crabtree is always the first to flood with heavy rains. But if it's dry, there are some nice trails to meander. It's right near RTP so you'll see a lot of folks eating there on their lunch break!

Umstead

4.5/5Wonderful!(810 area reviews)

While visiting Umstead, you might make a stop by sights like Frankie's Fun Park and Brier Creek Commons.

Umstead
This was an interesting trail I found today.  I parked at PNC arena then followed a pathway that went under Edwards Mill rd. And route 40. The first mile is nothing special.  It's a very wide Greenway with a ton of manholes.  But it leads you to a smaller trail that borders the Schenck forest and turns into loblolly trail in Umstead! This area was very pretty and followed what I believe was Reedy Creek.

The best part is I walked 4 miles total and only saw 3 other people!

This is a really unique bar that just opened down town. You can poor yourself as much beer as you want of each beer and you pay by the ounce. They're constantly changing the taps out too. They have a pretty good sized menu, but the food isn't spectacular.
