Garner to Gresham's - Person Street tour

If you start at Highway 50 and Timber Drive in Garner, you can drive a thoroughfare from here through downtown Raleigh out to Gresham's lake at Capital and 540. Timber to Hammond to Person to Wake Forest to Atlantic to Old Wake Forest - this long stretch is featured at Raleigh Nature in a "Straight Streets" post.

Above is the dead end of Timber, just across 50. The south end of Garner is just full of loblollies!

Below is Wildcat Creek as it crosses Hammond.
