Review: It's a paved greenway part of the ocean to sea or east coast trail system. Took my girls 9 and 11 and my 62 year old mother on her first bike ride in over 30 years. Great trail with some hill sections covered bridge and Boardwalk. Saw some small waterfalls and crossed over the cape fear river. Many of the people have no trail manner and walk 3 or four wide or let their dog leash all the way out. Caused my mother to crash. Other than that a great family trail will definately return many more times

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: 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.
