In addition to providing a new center of recreation, the Princeville Heritage Trail also commemorates the historical significance of the oldest city in the United States to have been chartered by African Americans.
The 3-mile fully accessible trail is located on the crest of the Princeville dike. The Princeville dike is the first phase of a continuous citywide trail system. It offers its users a variety of recreational experiences, including jogging, sightseeing, educational and interpretative programs. In addition, the dike provides scenic views of the Tar River and the town of Princeville.
