Hiking Project (type the city and it provides a list of all the hikes)
Lake Crabtree – technical mountain biking
RTP – particularly on the weekends there is very light traffic
North East Durham by Falls Lake
Triangle Paddle Locations courtesy of world paddler Gordon
Umstead Park – good for hiking, biking and running. Best to run on the fire roads, which are smooth packed gravel, instead of the hiking trails that have roots and rocks.
