    It's been years since my husband and I took our boys here to run off some of their energy, and Wake County has made a lot of improvements to Lake Crabtree park. There are new playgrounds, kayaks and s...  more »

    One of the best outdoor assets the Triangle has to offer. Great walking trails, large open play area with grills and picnic opportunities next to the lake. There are also boats for rent as well as some of the most fun Biking trails in the area! There are also several mountain bike races here every year.

    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.
