Explore and connect on our area's greenways

Triangle Trails is a collaboration between government, business, anchor institutions and civic leaders to make the Research Triangle Region a national leader in greenways and trails. The goals of Triangle Trails are to help plan, build, use, and promote the extensive network of greenways and trails found throughout our 15-county region.


Empowering Local Greenway & Trail Projects

The Triangle Trails Initiative is a collaborative effort to make our region a national leader in greenways and trails. We assist local governments and organizations with planning, promoting, developing, and maintaining their greenway, trail, bike/pedestrian, and blueway projects. County and local departments can apply for funding and support through our special projects program that focuses on empowering new trail networks, active construction, and long-term maintenance across the Triangle area.

Woodland Path
American Tobacco Trail

One of North Carolina’s longest, continuous, urban greenways, the American Tobacco Trail was originally envisioned in 1992. It took more than 20 years to fully connect the 23 miles of trails through Durham, Chatham and Wake counties. This is one of the most popular and well used greenways in our state. The trail is built on the former railroad bed of New Hope Valley Railroad. The Triangle Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, founded in 1989, began working to preserve the corridor and transform it into the wonderful asset that it is today. There are numerous trailheads along the 22-mile trail providing access for hikers and bikers. The southern portions of the trail in Wake County also support equestrian use.
