There are also 270 miles of protected stream corridors that connect to Walnut Creek and Crabtree Creek.

On any given day, you will find local Raleigh residents (as well as Cary, Wake Forest and Morrisville residents) walking, running or biking the Greenway. Most greenways include a 10 foot wide paved area so you can bike around a family of geese or run around the walkers.
