Cameron Park Trails

With approximately 20 miles of twisting trails, Cameron Park features an amazing, multi-use National Recreation Trail system. Hikers and bikers meander along the River Trail, zigzag up 100-foot bluffs to overlook the rivers, or rip down trails like Root Canal. Cameron Park is home to numerous races, runs and weekly hikes. The trail system provides an endless adventure with wildlife and native vegetation.
