Explore an area rich in history—from the Revolutionary War to the New Deal and beyond—on this 66-mile route through Bladen and Pender Counties.
Segment 14 also includes an alternate route featuring a short section of the beautiful blackwater Northeast Cape Fear River. If you have access to a kayak, canoe, or SUP, you can paddle the river, but we are not aware of any local outfitters with boats for rent.
This segment is a great place to explore by bicycle as well as on foot as all but the river section and a one-mile loop trail in Moores Creek National Battlefield is on roads and multi-use trails.
