The Clayton Riverwalk is a paved, 10-foot-wide, 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 riverwalk is also part of two long-distance trail networks: the East Coast Greenway and the Mountains-to-Sea Trail.
In May 2023, the replacement of three bridges along the Clayton Riverwalk was completed and the bridges opened to the public.
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.
