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.

There are 3 access points: Gold Park located at 415 Dimmocks Mill Rd., the main entrance is located behind the Eno River Parking Deck at the end of Nash And Kollock St. or third access point is at River Park behind The Orange County Justice Facility at 140 E. Margaret Lane.

Riverwalk Greenway Reviews

Bikes allowed on western portion

We ride this trail on our bikes weekly. It’s true the eastern portion is closed to bikes, but there is about 2.5 miles open for very nice biking. It’s best to start at Gold Park in West Hillsborough. This trail can be busy at times, but it is shaded most of the way with great views of the Eno River.

PEDESTRIAN ONLY

This is a nice trail, the river walk end is CLEARLY and PROMINENTLY marked as no bikes allowed. Much of the speedway end of the trail was difficult to bike (we only saw signs later after being told to look). Sadly it's the only trail in this part of the state.

this is a cool walk and is best on summer evenings wit all of the sounds of the south. parking is easy on both ends
