Trailwood is part of the scenic 27606 zip code of Raleigh, North Carolina. The neighborhood is located generally to the south of Interstate 440 and north of Interstate 40 off of Trailwood Drive. This close proximity to two of the largest interstates in the region makes it possible for residents to enjoy the quiet of the small neighborhood while still maintaining easy access to the offerings of the surrounding Raleigh region.
One of the biggest draws to the Trailwood area is the schooling. In addition to being the home of North Carolina State University, one of the largest schools in the country, Trailwood is near some of the best K-12 schools, as well. Schools such as Centennial Campus Middle School, which is next to the neighborhood, and AB Combs Leadership Elementary School are both Magnet Schools. These schools are known for their standard leading educational approaches that provide a model for many other schools. Athens Drive High School is also nearby and provides a high level of education. The close proximity to the university also makes this area a highly educated one, with many of the residents here having a Bachelors Degree or higher.
While there is only a light bit of shopping in this part of town, the Avent Ferry Shopping Center does provide many of the day to day needs of residents, as well as some dining options. The center has a Food Lion grocery store, Family Dollar, and a number of popular quick service restaurants such as Hardee’s and Subway. Jax Sports Bar is a popular place for residents and students to catch North Carolina State University games and is packed on game days, especially during football games.
The area is also home to a wealth of parks with Lake Johnson and Lake Raleigh on opposing sides of the neighborhood.
