Best recreational park in all of Raleigh. Hike the unpaved side. It's beautiful!
The hills here are killer! Talk about conditioning your legs! A great 3.25 mile run/walk with a couple good scenic overlooks! Parking is a pain on crowded beautiful days.
If you run counter-clock wise the hills are more forgiving!!
One of my favorite places in Raleigh. There are two parking lots. The one away from the boat house is usually less crowded
Great Lake to walk around and very pretty!
Walk around the trails so beautiful!
Go to a quite spot along the trail. If you sit by the edge of the water long enough you'll see fish jumping and hear frogs singing. On sunny days you' ll see lots of turtles.
Take the dirt trail across the street from the boat house for an extra adventure
Bring your eno hammock for a relaxing lakeside snooze!
Ahhhhmazzingg running trails and scenic lookouts. Very relaxing place. :)
If you missed the DO NOT SWIM signs, trust me. Don't swim in the lake! I had just moved here and got kiiilller strep throat after swimming in the lake. Such a bad idea. :(
Just take a walk and enjoy nature.
Don't walk down Avent Ferry while the bridge is out!! Take the long loop!!
I miss living there in the apartments. It is a wonderful place to live on the lake.
A great walk and very peaceful

I just love it here.
Park on Lake Dam Rd if both of the lots are full.
The park is under construction. A portion of is shut down. Go right facing the boat house.
