Valley Crest is near one of the better recreation areas in Raleigh, Shelly Lake. What it lacks in amenities, the lake more than makes up for in natural beauty. A public dock makes it possible to access the lake for fishing, kayaking and wildlife viewing. There is also an excellent trail, Greenway Trail that provides a few miles of incredible sights for the walkers, runners and cyclists that use it on a regular basis. The trail starts at the park and runs throughout the surrounding neighborhoods.
