Tar River is a 4 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Rocky Mount, North Carolina that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, trail running, and canoeing and is accessible year-round.
It is a canoe route but we did it by car and it looks like Chris did it by bike.
We followed the Tar River as best we could by car. I am thinking of coming back and canoe camping if we by a canoe. It was really nice country.
