Historic Occoneechee Speedway Hike

Historic Occoneechee Speedway Hike Professional Review and Guide

"This is perhaps the most unusual hike in this book. Here you can walk the only original speedway left from the inaugural 1949 NASCAR racing circuit, now on the National Register of Historic Places.

This locale on the banks of the Eno River still features parts of the original track and facilities, from the ticket booth to the built-in stands to the banked turns, now all set in tall shady woods. Additional trails on this historical hike take you through hills and along riverside flats."
