  • We have kayaked here several times (with our own kayaks). It is an easy and safe launch and the lake has a wealth of interesting places to kayak (and to fish). We have also done several hikes here on ...  more »

  • I participated in my 5th Curse OF The Crab race this past weekend. Rode 32 miles in 3 hours. Crabtree lets TORC host this race each year. Great race for the mountain bike community. Lots of families a...  more »
  • Lake Crabtree has some of the best maintained mountain biking trails in the area. It's very popular, you see lots of other people enjoying the trails on a nice day. Make sure to check to see if the trails are open before you head out there, they are usually closed after a rain storm. I've also seen plenty of people paddle boarding and kayaking on the lake, but never been myself.
  • Beautiful place! Well kept and lots of variety. Some of the path bridges are (VERY close to) too narow for our stroller. Making parts a bit more of a struggle than a stroll. But over all a beautiful morning. Can't wait to bring our little guy kayaking!
  • We love the variety of activities at Lake Crabtree. They offer picnic areas with grills, lots of nature trails to enjoy, a couple of playgrounds for the kiddos, fishing areas, paddle boats, a kite flying area, beach volleyball....SO MUCH to do. We especially enjoyed the Old Beech Nature Trail. Make sure you grab one of their info guides at the beginning of the trail. Each numbered post, on the trail, corresponds to a blurb in the pamphlet. We learned several things, during our journey, that we did not know. We will definitely go back, many times!
  • This is one of best places for mountain biking in the Raleigh area. There's over 20 miles of trails system nestled in this pocket as well as immediate access to Greenway.
  • Park is great. Easy access from 40 or N Cary. Access to greenway and trails. Boat rental more trouble than its worth.
