Riverwalk Greenway Description

The Riverwalk Greenway is a 2-mile trail in Hillsborough, North Carolina.  The shared use trail begins at Gold Park and heads east, staying close to the river for most of its length, before concluding the at the Occonocchee Speedway grounds, a former NASCAR track which dates back to the late 1940s. The downtown segment of the trail doubles as the route of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail (MST) through Hillsborough, a planned 1000-mile cross-state trail from the Great Smoky Mountains to Jockey’s Ridge State Park. About half of the MST has been built and is open for use.
