The scope of the Crabtree Creek Trail east extension project is to construct an approximately 4.1 mile greenway trail. The trail will extend from the existing Crabtree Creek Trail to the Neuse River Trail at Anderson Point Park.
The Crabtree Creek Trail east extension will connect with the existing trail at Milburnie Road, extending along Crabtree Creek, and ultimately joining the Neuse River Trail at Anderson Point Park. The completed Crabtree Creek Trail will extend across the city, connecting several important areas and facilities: North Raleigh, Shelley Lake, Sertoma Park, Lassiter Mill, Kiwanis Park, and Anderson Point Park.

The Capital Area Greenway System was first adopted by City Council in 1976. This plan proposed a system of linear parks located primarily along rivers, streams, and creeks, and included the opportunity for an interconnected system of pedestrian trails across the region.
The existing Crabtree Creek Trail extends from Lindsay Drive, west of NC 70, then crosses inside the 440 beltline, and ends at Milburnie Road, west of New Bern Avenue. The Crabtree Creek Trail East Extension will extend the existing trail to the Neuse River Trail.
