What's New in Version 2.1
- Added Neuse River Trail to the Raleigh greenways
- Added Clayton Greenways which includes part of Neuse River Trail and Sam Branch Trail
More accurate than government PDF
This app is useful as an accurate map of the greenways of Wake County, NC. The PDF map from the city of Raleigh is what is *planned*, not what exists. For instance, this app correctly shows that the Neuse River Greenway has a gap at Horseshoe Farms Park.
The pins that show greenway entrances are useful, but contain long technical descriptions of the trails that are too much for humans to read.
The nearest greenway feature (big button in the middle) may correctly tell you which greenway is closest, but when you pick one, it takes you to the beginning of that greenway, not the closest entrance.
Great and useful app! One request. Wish there was a way to turn off parking markers. They are big and make it difficult to see the trails on the map.
Missing a lot
The map is not up to date; doesn't show the trail that passes through Centennial. Also doesn't show paved/unpaved distinction. Descriptions of trails are not very helpful... Would like to see useful stuff like whether bikes are allowed or how hilly it is. There is no way within the app to send feedback to developers.
