It winds nearly four miles through a beautiful blend of trees, plants and wildlife with a spectacular view of the river. There are more that 700 species of plants and trees and 150 species of birds. The Cape Fear River Trail is designated as part of the East Coast Greenway. The Greenway is a series of urban trails and greenways that will eventually connect from Maine to Key West, Florida, similar to the Appalachian Trail. This attraction is on Cumberland County's All-American Adventure Trail.
