The Beady Loop Trail is a nice little surprise for dogs and their people who are camping in the Neuse River Recreation Area (known locally as Flanner Beach), which is part of the Croatan National Forest. Hiking trails suitable for dogs here make for especially nice outdoor activity in spring and fall when the weather is cooler and less humid and fewer annoying insects are present. If you are camping at the 42-site Neuse River Recreation Area, or in the New Bern area in the cooler months, the Beady Loop Trail is a nice woodland stroll for the dogs.

Nice trail. I wasn't sure of where it lead to when I was on it, and it was getting dark. Actually got a little nervous because you can't tell how far the trail goes. Nice hills and scenery. The beginning has openings in the tree line to look out onto the river, which actually looks more like the ocean. I would recommend doing this midday so you don't get lost in the dark. 2nd review: Did this trail on a Saturday morning late October; very peaceful. TONS of squirrels! Some pesky mosquitoes, just don't stop for too long or you'll get bitten.
