Not much to do, should specify the length of the actual hike. Would be good for canoe or kayak trip, but only a1mile hike. Would have loved to seen the whole river maybe next time by kayak.

Have driven along the Cape Fear many times, but to really know it is to hike along it or canoe in it. There is a nice place to rent canoes, kayaks, etc. at Cape Fear River Adventures just by the 401 bridge going into Lillington. Also good place to hike and camp at Raven Rock State Park just upstream from there. Many other places to visit along the river as well.
