If you’re feeling energetic, check out the 44-Mile East Coast Greenway Cross-Triangle Ride route!  The East Coast Greenway is a network of trails and greenways connecting the entire east coast from Maine to Florida, and 40 miles of the greenway are right here in the Triangle! The route runs through Cary, Durham, and Raleigh, and makes for a great place to take a walk, hike, or bike ride of any size.  Plan your trip on the ECG today with the East Coast Greenway Mapping Tool!

Remember Greenway Etiquette!

White Oak Creek GreenwayWhen you’re out and about on Cary’s greenways and trails, remember the general etiquette and rules of the trail. Along with the six-foot recommendation for social distancing, ride and walk single file when you pass others in either direction. Cyclists must yield to pedestrians and when approaching others, provide a verbal “on your left” along with allowing extra space for passing.
