Other options for outdoor recreation within a few miles of Hearthridge include Durant Nature Park to the northeast and William B. Umstead State Park to the southwest. The latter is adjacent to the Raleigh-Durham International Airport, another major attraction of the Hearthridge area.
For those who can afford it, a very nice private golf club is situated roughly two miles east of Hearthridge, just south of I-540. The North Ridge Country Club offers not one, but two 18-hole golf courses. These courses are some of the most challenging in the city, yet they remain playable for a variety of skill levels. Other amenities here are consistent with what you might expect from a prestigious private club; they include an Olympic-size swimming pool, large clubhouse with dining options, tennis courts, and fitness facilities.
The heart of downtown Raleigh is just nine miles to the south, easily accessible via nearby State Highway 50. Among the prominent features of the downtown area are the State Capitol and the North Carolina State University campus.
