The Mayo River State Park TRACK Trail is a flat, 0.5 mile loop through the woods. There is a lot to see in the forest; look for running cedar, ferns, mushrooms, and shelters animals have made.
Created as a state park in 2003, Mayo River State Park is one of the newest North Carolina State Parks. The park offers a picnic shelter with grills (accommodates up to 100 and may be reserved), three individual picnic pads each with table and grill, two loop hiking trails (0.5 mile and 1.8 mile), rest rooms, and fishing in the two ponds (N.C. fishing license required).
