Apex has 3.5 miles of paved greenway, the bulk of which is the Beaver Creek Greenway, the spine of the Apex system. Beaver Creek currently runs from Jaycee Park near downtown 2 .2 miles west to Kelly Road Park (save for a hiccup near Kelly Road caused by Triangle Expressway construction). The plan is to eventually link downtown with the American Tobacco Trail, the 22-mile spine of the Triangle’s greenway network, a distance of five miles.
Nearly a mile of trail now runs along North Beaver Creek. That trail will eventually connect new developments (Sutton Place, Charleston Village and Beckett Crossing among them) with the Beaver Creek Greenway.
Apex is also the site of a much-anticipated stretch of greenway that would link Cary’s nearly complete White Oak Creek Greenway with the American Tobacco Trail. Though only a little over a mile long, there are no plans at present to build this link, which would not only link to Cary's Bond Park, but also to Lake Crabtree, Umstead State Park and the Raleigh greenway system.
