The tobacco trail is a great place for bike riding, hiking, running, dog walking. I love being able to ride without worrying about distracted drivers. It’s unpaved fom mile 14.5 to mile 22, so those with road bikes need to be aware of that.

We continue to go back to the American Tobacco Trail. The food is great and the service better. Also my kids like the fact they can watch hockey - they prefer the Flyers; and football (Eagles.......). Great place to meet

I love the ATT. It's nice and wide, mostly flat and nice and shady in the summertime. It can get crowded on the weekends, but it's not usually too bad. The wake county portion is not paved, but it's hard enough for riding on and...More

It was well-traveled but not too crowded to enjoy. I parked at Herndon Park and rode north. Trail was easy to follow and very flat for this area. I can't wait to go back and ride the entire trail!

Yeah the one at New Hill looks closer, especially if your starting point is to the west of Holly Springs. Otherwise taking 540 up north and going to the Wimberly Road entry point shouldn't be too far either.
