Neuse River Trails

Hike or bike around the Neuse River Campground. Stretch your legs on the mile-long paved trail that circles the campground.  You can also enjoy the two-mile dirt trail that crosses a lovely tupelo swamp by boardwalk and winds through the mixed pine-hardwood forest. Both trails are open to bikers and hikers, but no motorized vehicles are allowed.
