The two-mile loop trail at the North Carolina Museum of Art Park gives you and your pup a unique opportunity to browse works of art together. The trail winds through woodlands, meadows, and open lawns where you can see sculptures by Rodin and Miró, installations by cutting-edge contemporary artists, and landscape art like the museum's iconic Gyre Rings by Thomas
Sayre. The Reedy Creek Trail forms the bottom part of the museum loop and continues beyond it for five miles.
The four-mile Lake Johnson Loop Trail inside the Lake Johnson Park completely circumnavigates its namesake lake. The trail is designed so that you and your pup can either hike the trail in one continuous loop or split it in half by taking the West Loop or East Loop. The lakeside boardwalk sections are especially scenic, and you'll also pass by shady forested sections and picnic areas that are perfect spots to stop and give your good dog some pets.
