The Cape Fear Mountain Bike Trail is a relatively new feature of the Cape Fear River Trail (CFRT)/Clark Park area, located approximately one mile north up the CFRT from the Park.
After crossing Eastwood Avenue, you will see trailhead signs on the right not far from the train tracks and power easement. This area is a more technical ride near the river. Surfaces in this area can be slippery after a rainstorm. The trail then crosses over the CFRT on a more winding and flat path. This section is better for beginners but can deliver a satisfying ride for all.
The Cape Fear Mountain Bike Trail is the result of Fayetteville Cumberland Parks and Recreation (FCPR) gaining support through various volunteer groups, individuals and a partnership with The Bicycle Shop.
The current portion of the trail is only the beginning. FCPR’s goal is to stimulate the interest of users and get assistance in adding more mileage. The trail currently has nearly 3 miles with future potential for close to 10.
If you are interested in volunteering for trail expansion and maintenance, leave your contact information with a park ranger.
Park at Clark Park or Jordan Soccer Complex and ride your bike on the paved portion of the CFRT until you arrive at the trail head. The Mountain Bike Trail is north from Clark Park and South from Jordan Soccer Complex. It is closer to Clark Park.
