The trail is a paved path, it is designated as part of the East Coast Greenway. The trail winds for miles through a beautiful blend of trees, with spectacular views of the river. The terrain is slightly hilly. In addition to the wooden bridges, including one covered bridge, there is a 700-foot boardwalk through the marsh and wetlands near Clark Park.

Review: This is very limited for mountain biking, and full or walkers/runners. It is fully paved with some elevation changes. Great for running, road biking, or hanging out with the family.

Review: Don't really take the mountain bike out here. I have taken my road bike out just to blow the dust off of it because it is paved. There are also quite a few geocaches in this area, if you're into that sore of thing.

Review: The trail and Google map shown are for the All American Trail . Cape Fear River Trail is just south of the VA Hospital. It's completely paved with some elevation changes. It's a good place to bring the family .

Review: Pavement but nice scenery, nothing demanding good path for more general public friendly.

Review: this is not a singletrack as you can see from the photos, but it's a good relaxing way to get out with the wife and kids and enjoy a nice bike ride through the woods. there are some elevation changes and a pretty steep one on the ride back.
