Did this trail in late February with my sheltie. There are not a lot of hiking opportunities in the Greenville, NC area, so this state park is a nice little oasis in a hiking desert. All told, there are about 8 miles of total trails in the park, with the Goose Creek Trail being the main, and longest, of them all.
The trail winds in and out of forest and swamp land, passing by the occasional campsite and road, with good views of various waterways at the trail's beginning and end. The trail has good infrastructure (boardwalks and benches), and on a Tuesday morning, was not crowded at all (I saw one other hiker). Plenty of other trails branch off this main one for anyone looking to add miles or do a little extra exploring.
If you're stuck in the area for any extended amount of time and need to scratch your hiking itch, this trail and park do the trick!
