  • Forest Ridge Park is a great way to get away from everything, while not going very far. Not only that, but the trail is very wide and open, and it's an easy walk out to the water. The water is beautiful. Falls Lake is a very large reservoir, that feels clean and you can allow your dog to swim if desired. I know my GS loved it!
  • Forest Ridge is a fairly new access to Falls Lake at the end of old N.C. 98 in northern Wake County. Some of the trails leading to the water are old farming gravel roads. Hikes are short, less than 1-2 miles round trip, and pretty untouched. Mountain bikers were using the trails and it would be good exercise for that, with some elevations. Fishing and hosting allowed, no swimming or camping.
