I enjoyed this hike! Easy and enjoyable!

Great Trail
What a great outing!

Very nice walk along the river. We only ran into a few people along the way so not terribly busy. The jets flying overhead can get noisy but it's also kind of neat to see. We mostly stuck to the beach but when we were on the trail it seemed well established. My dogs loved it and were good and tired after.

My friend and I did this yesterday. we got lost in the woods for a while. It was really fun. There's a geocache in the woods. It's really an amazing trail and so beautiful.

Was very nice. Good views and easy to walk.

Great overnight backpacking trail.

Did a through-hike today with a few friends. Recommend to always start at the North end. That way if your feet get wet towards the south you're not hiking the rest of the way with wet shoes/boots. Like most people have said, very wet for a few miles. You can generally do it just fine without getting your feet wet by walking around the edges; although you have to pick your way past some thorns though. Altogether, a pretty fun hike. I may be wrong but I thought it was 22 miles, not 19.

Nice trails! Only issue is all the dog poop on trails. Just be sure to watch where you put your foot.

Short and sweet! Trails are well-marked.

Our troop did the entire 22 mile trail on Jan 13-14. We camped halfway along the trail around Dogwood Shelter as the shelter was occupied. The first half of the trail was very challenging to stay dry as there was a lot of water from the recent snow and rain prior to our arrival. Bridged walkways were very slick which provided a balancing challenge with a 45lb pack. One part of the trail was completely flooded and it was difficult to get around without your shoes getting wet. The second half was worse and it got to a point where we just gave up trying to stay dry and just trudge through the water to keep our pace. All in all it is a nice trail to hike if it’s a drought during the winter. I would like to come back when it’s not so water logged.

Mile 2-6 at southern end after rain was miserable. The January winter day was mild but the frequent deep water left me wading. Dog loved it. But I changed socks twice and then just gave up. When I crossed a logging road I headed back to my car on the mostly dryer roadways. I’d have given fewer stars but the trail itself is very well maintained-no logs or heavy growth. A few short raised trestles. If it’s dry for a few weeks then maybe a great hike. I even met a guy w gators on and some of the water was deeper than his gators. Coming up from Oyster point the first mile of two was nice. Clear path, pine needles but then much deep water with heavy pocosin on both sides.
If you hit water, turn around. Don’t be like me, expecting it to get better...northern half of Neusioc trail may be better. But after 7 miles I was muddy and exhausted.... then, I had to get back to my car...

Is the section past alligator rd closed? Around mile 4/5

Loved the trail and so did my 7 yo golden doodle. Little spooked that the sign said to wear bright orange!! I had to turn my coat inside out! Shouldn’t have mentioned that to my husband, now he doesn’t want me going back.

All flat, great for jogging. Only a few roots!!

Clint was correct not a well traveled trail but an awesome one. Never knew eastern Carolina had hills. Great trail to give you feeling your closer to the foothills. I am glad I went in a cold day because I’m sure it’s mosquito heaven in warm months. Beautiful overlooks and views of waterways. Need to mention its access is on MCAS Cherry Point so you must have proper military ID to access

Could not find the trail.

Easy trail for kids & dogs!

Have walked this several times and it's an easy hike. It can be isolated at times & we've heard wildlife when it's late afternoon (never seen any gators though). Great for dogs and kids, easy hike. Can get really muddy and have sitting water in spots, so be aware when bringing kids.

easy. and love taking the stroller out there.

Fun trail for the bike, a little sandy in some spots, bigger kids with multi gear bikes should be ok.

Great park for a quick walk with the dog!
