Wayne County Paddle Trails
The Wayne County Paddle Trails consist of over 70 miles of interconnected rivers, streams, and tributaries that twist and wind through Wayne County. The main artery of water, the Neuse River, is estimated to be two million years old and has an abundance of wildlife in and along its banks. Paddle by the Cliffs of the Neuse where the river cuts a 90-ft. gorge through limestone and sandstone bluffs. Wayne County Paddle Trails is part of the Statewide System of Paddle Trails being promoted by NC Paddle Trails Association.
