Cape Fear River Trail Professional Review and Guide
"What makes the Cape Fear River Trail particularly interesting is that despite its urban greenway feel, it takes in a remarkable amount of nature. Some seven hundred species of plants can be found along the trail, including hearty bottomland species and trees more commonly found in the mountains, and throughout the year you may see 150 species of birds. Bluebird boxes scattered along the trail have successfully attracted this colorful bird of blue and orange hue; yellowbellied sliders and river cooters are common sights basking on logs in the river; and the handrails on the numerous bridges and boardwalks along the trail make great sunning spots for the eastern fence lizard."
