Clayton River Walk Description

Clayton River Walk is a paved, four-mile route along the tree-lined Neuse River in the town of Clayton, about 20 miles southeast of Raleigh. It connects directly to the Neuse River Trail, which runs along the eastern outskirts of Raleigh for nearly 30 miles, and links to the beautiful Sam's Branch Greenway. The river walk is also part of two long-distance trail networks: the East Coast Greenway and the Mountains-to-Sea Trail.

 

Parking and Trail Access

Trailhead parking is available at 2686 Covered Bridge Road. Another lot is available close by at North O'Neill Street, on the west end of Sam's Branch Greenway.

Clayton River Walk Reviews

Nice trail

s

This is a nice, paved, level trail.
There are a couple small hills for a challenge.
The numerous bridges, the little creeks and the river make for nice scenary.

So, as always. If in the area and want to get a couple miles in, give this trail a try. I think you'll enjoy it.

A beautiful trail connecting with more

s

We accessed the Clayton River Walk from the Sam's Branch Greenway as we continued on to the Neuse River Trail. This well maintained greenway just continued on and on! We made good use of some of the many trailside benches for our breaks. The little bridges that crossed over the many small streams were great.
Being as it was a Sunday there were not many other trail users, but the ones we did encounter were pleasant and polite.

love the scenery

A Beautiful Day for a Walk

s

My girlfriend and I decided to try out the Clayton River Walk Trails(along with Sam's Branch).

The scenery is breathtaking and the trails are extremely well maintained.

A definite Thumbs Up and a place I sincerely look forward to returning to many times this Summer.

In the greenway system of the Raleigh area this ranks as the best. It is scenic, it is diverse. It is well maintained.
