The J. Bayard Clark Park and Nature Center TRACK Trail is an easy 0.3 mile loop that follows a portion of the Cape Fear River Trail and a portion of the Wetlands Trail.
The trail features a playground, streams, and opportunities to spot wildlife. Clark Park is Fayetteville's second largest regional park and is considered a gem by those who frequent it. It was designed, and remains a natural woodland area dedicated to preserving the environment and educating the public on North Carolina plants and wildlife. Three trails wind through the park and along the Cape Fear River. The Nature Center showcases both static displays and live animals. Park rangers educate visitors at the center, along the park trails and through school visits.
