  • The trail through the Clayton NC area is absolutely beautiful. I walk through here with my dog very frequently. There are two entrances - one off Shotwell Road and then one off Covered Bridge Road - t...  more »
  • I only did a small part of it, but it was a pretty trail to go for a run. I did it in November and it was well maintained and nice. I would travel more of it the next time I'm in town!  more »
  • Well maintained, beautiful views, go as long or short I trip as you like. Bring a lunch and eat at the picnic area or along the trail. Well done Dept. of Parks and Recreation.  more »

  • Great place to ride without worrying about cars or getting chased by dogs. No matter if you're looking to walk a mile or cycle 60 miles this is the place to go. It's very well kept and its just a very beautiful place to enjoy. For the most part everyone you'll see is very friendly with the occasional sour puss.
  • Somehow I had no idea this beautiful ~27 mile trail existed until recently. Really nice, mostly flat trail perfect for biking, jogging or walking. Also popular for dropping kayaks / canoes to explore the Neuse River. Very scenic and pleasant trail that is definitely worth exploring.
  • Excellent trail next to the River- mostly flat with a few hills....great ride for all
  • Beautiful diverse landscapes with river view, hills and multituđe of bridges. Smooth, well maintained asphalt road.
  • Absolutely beautiful and peaceful place to walk! Truly enjoyed it!
