Description

The Cape Fear River Trail is a wide, paved, multi-use trail. It roughly follows the Cape Fear River from just south of Clark Park to the Jordon Soccer Complex. The trail is very well maintained and includes guide signs that point out interesting features along the trail.

The trail heads over several water features using wooden bridges and boardwalks, including a beautiful covered bridge that crosses under a railroad trestle while crossing over a stream.
