Creek Greenway Trail
March 24, 2015
The 5.6-mile Honeycutt Creek Greenway Trail opened on March 24, 2015, providing a link
between the popular Shelley Lake loop trail and the Mountain-to-Sea Trail at Falls Lake.
The trail, which took about two years to complete, connects to the East Fork Mine Creek Trail
at Longstreet Drive. It travels along East Fork Mine Creek through the Summerfield Nor th
neighborhood, crosses Strickland Road, continues through the Bent Tree neighborhood,
moves through a pedestrian tunnel beneath I-540 and reaches the intersection of Honeycutt
and Durant roads. There, it transitions to an unpaved sur face trail along Honeycutt Creek to
Raven Ridge Road.
The $4 million project was funded by the 2003 and 2007 parks bonds.
