Smithfield’s Buffalo Creek Greenway is a paved, 2.9 mile out-and-back trail meandering along the Spring Branch to the Neuse River Walk at Smithfield Town Commons, then to Buffalo Creek. Part of North Carolina’s Mountains-to-Sea Trail, the greenway links Smithfield’s historic downtown business district to the northern and southern historic residential neighborhoods. The path is ten feet wide, features four steel bridges, 250 feet of boardwalk, and is perfect for hikers, runners, and bikers. Trailheads are located throughout the downtown area and at the back of Smithfield Community Park.
