Buffalo Creek Greenway

Buffalo Creek Greenway

The entrance to the Buffalo Creek Greenway is at the back of Smithfield Community Park. The trail meanders 3 miles along the Spring Branch to the Neuse River Walk at Smithfield Town Commons. The path is ten feet side and is our local part of the Mountains to Sea Trail. It’s perfect for hikers, runners and bikers.
