A 33-mile paved route from a state park with cliffs (surprising for the coastal plain) to Bentonville Battleground, the site of the last major Confederate offensive of the Civil War. This drive connects two interesting sites on the coastal plain south of Goldsboro. Cliffs of the Neuse State Park has surprisingly high cliffs along the Neuse River; the high rocks are oddities on the otherwise flat coastal plain.
Bentonville Battleground, at the end of the drive, marks the site of the last Confederate offensive in the waning days of the Civil War. Special attractions: Cliffs of the Neuse State Park, Bentonville Battleground State Historic Site, hiking, fishing, and boating. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
