Nice, challenging walk for a beautiful Sunday. There weren't a lot of people when we got there and even less further out into the hike. Be prepared for some intense hills and some challenging terrain with roots and rocks.

Cold, windy day in April. I hiked roughly twelve miles of trails and loved every minute of it. There were definitely some good hills that will give you an awesome workout. A few trails were plenty busy, while at one point I didn't see anyone for about an hour. I look forward to hiking this one again.

Nice trail along the river and through the woods. Some exertion on the inclines but not too difficult. Nice views at the end of winter with no leaves on the trees. Saw herons, bluebirds, woodpeckers and frogs. 5 miles total walk from the parking lot which took us just over 2 hours at a leisurely pace.

It was like an interstate hwy. No curves, hills or different scenery. Maybe I'm use to the Neuse River Trail which is awesome!
