The North Carolina State Park Where You Can Hike Across A Stone Bridge, A Metal Bridge, And A Wooden Bridge Is A Grand Adventure

William B. Umstead State Park, once known as Crabtree Creek Recreation Demonstration Area, is located in Wake County near downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. With its boundless network of hiking and multi-use trails, three manmade lakes and their tributaries make it a great multiple-bridges park. Pack a picnic as both park entrances offer picnic shelters, or better yet, pack an overnight bag to stay at Crabtree Creek’s camping areas, primitive cabins, and the historic landmark Maple Hill Lodge. Your visit will bring to light from the very beginning that great care went into the creation of William B. Umstead State Park, especially into the building of its many bridges that course through multiple hiking trails. Here are a few highlights.
