At the turn of the century visitors flocked to the area. They drank mineral water from local springs to cure their ills and they took riverboat excursions to the cliffs. Things have changed since then, however, the cliffs remain virtually unaltered, standing as a journal of the geological and biological history of the land. Look down this spectacular formation to the river far below, now protected within the boundaries of Cliffs of the Neuse State Park.

I think we drove more miles than we would have canoed.

Not up to hiking or canoeing this far. We followed the river by road as best we could. It made a wonderful road trip, from small towns to scenery.

I recently kayaked 22 miles of the neuse from seven springs to kinston. Great trip. I was with Boy Scouts and we camped overnight about 2/3 of the distance. Awesome trip.
