Beachside to Boardwalk Family Fun in Carolina Beach
Riverwalk is a paved, accessible, urban greenway that stretches about 1.8 miles along the Eno River between Gold Park in western Hillsborough and trails east of town. It is a free popular trail for walking, jogging and cycling, and provides pedestrian connections between several neighborhoods. The greenway’s downtown portion, which goes along the town's central River Park, is the primary route of the N.C. Mountains-to-Sea Trail, and the first section of the statewide trail system to be constructed in Orange County. Riverwalk also is one of the few sections of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail located in an urban environment, giving users easy access to restrooms, restaurants and shopping. Along the Hillsborough Riverwalk, explore a whimsical castle stickwork sculpture by renowned artist Patrick Dougherty called "A Sight to Behold."
