Runner Notes

Great for running - wide and stable, though a few spots have deep sand that will give you a workout.

Description

Easy trail with small elevation changes. Very sandy in some areas. Trail is multi-use, so you'll encounter hikers, runners, bikers, and people on horseback. There are benches every so often to provide a place to stop. There are several other trails throughout the park so you can tailor the length of your journey.

The trail is well marked and there is a map and information at the trailhead. You can download a map and learn more about Carvers Creek State Park here: ncparks.gov/carvers-creek-s…
