Biking gives us an opportunity to escape our homes during the current pandemic. Many local JOCO riders are hitting the Mountains to the Sea Trail for their escape.

Bike Trails in Your Backyard!

This is an extra special perk for residents who live in the Riverwood Athletic communities of Alpine Valley, Badger Pass, Ravens Ridge, as well as the Ashcroft community and LionsGate! All of these Clayton communities are located along the Mountain to the Sea Trail.

This section of the Mountains to the Sea Trail located in Clayton is commonly called the Clayton River Walk. Much of it follows along the Neuse River making it a beautiful scenic ride!
