Reedy Creek Trail is the longest section of bike and bridle trails within Umstead State Park.  It is a point to point path extending from Trenton Road to the park exit just south of the Airport Lookout.

The trail, being the major spur that links most other hiking and bridle trails within the park, sees substantial foot traffic as well as cyclists and the occasional horse.  A frequent training loop for cyclists, especially in preparation for the Fall and Winter cyclocross season, connects Reedy Creek Trail with Turkey Creek Trail and Graylyn Road.

The Reedy Creek Trail can be used as a connector between the Raleigh and Cary greenway systems. One end of the trail meets the Black Creek Greenway while the other end meets the Reedy Creek Greenway.
