City dwellers have been flocking to the Roanoke River Paddle Trail since 1997. This peaceful setting offers urbanites close encounters with wildlife and the quaint, small-town experiences found throughout the region. Here you can find great Eastern North Carolina BBQ as well as a host of other Southern culinary traditions, including time-honored offerings like fried herring and steamed oysters.
The remoteness found along the Roanoke River provides sanctuary for a wide variety of plant and animal life and is linked to the NC Birding Trail.
