Riding in the Winston-Salem Area

There is a service road around Salem Lake that has become a popular trail for hiking, bicycling and horse back riding. It connects with the Winston-Salem greenway. The greenway begins at the north east corner of the Market Place Mall on Peters Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem. It is paved and is about four miles in length. The service road around the lake is dirt, but it is in good condition. We enjoy the unpaved road best, so that's where we always ride. The ride around the lake is approximately seven miles.

The trail can be accessed from Linville Road just south of Business I-40 but the parking lot there is small. Larger parking lots are at the other side of the lake at the fishing station area. That area is at the end of Salem Lake Road, which is off Reynolds Park Road approximately a mile west of the Reynolds Park Golf Course. For further information about the lake, call 336-650-7677.

We particularly enjoy this trail on warm winter days, early spring and late fall, when the leaves are off the trees. Then there is no underbrush to block the view, and you can see all across the lake from every location. Copyright 2007, All Rights Reserved Copyright 2007, All Rights Reserved
