Guides to Fayetteville

The Adventurist’s Guide to Fayetteville

All you have to do is look around Fort Bragg and you will find adventure! Here are 10 local adventures to get you started. Take a dip into the Cape Fear River, zipline past a natural waterfall, or rope together your crew and float for hours.

The Outdoorsman

Hike into the waterfall under the bridge at Cape Fear River Trail. Past mile marker 1, you will come across a pretty glorious bridge. Hiding on the left is a rustic and short trail to the falls. It is worth the trek! Discover Rockefeller history during a hike at Carver’s Creek State Park. The expansive summer estates of the Rockefellers are often open for tours. Sometimes even yoga. The flora around Carver’s Creek is photo-worthy too!

The Adrenaline-Junkie

Ziplining and free falls are everyday business at Zipquest. Rated number one in the region for ziplining, rest assure you are in good hands. Conveniently located in the heart of Fayetteville but it feels miles away. Somewhat addicting, indoor Skydiving at Paraclete Xp SkyVenture offers a weightless rush. Work towards flips if you dare.

The Fisherman

Lake Rim offers beauty and peace. Just get there early to beat the young anglers! Bass bite the lines here. Bring a picnic and your thoughts.  Pontoon and fishing boats are welcome in Cumberland County. Bass and catfish are the most popular catches at Cape Fear River. 3 Local worm stores in Fayetteville can get you prepped for a catch of the day.

The Water-Lover

Cape Fear River Adventures drops you off in a tube, kayak, or canoe. Float or paddle your way to the beautiful finish line. For the extremely coordinated, try SUP (Stand-up paddle) Yoga.

Spring Lake Outpost sets out glowing kayaks on special nights. Perfect for two adventurists on date-night. It’s practically magic! Follow #FayNCBloggers to see their recent river adventures and tips.

The Bicyclist

Pedal over the Smith Lake on post for lake views and an easy trail ride open year-round. 6 Mountain-biking trails range between 1.9 and 3.9 miles. Bathrooms and picnic tables greet you at the trail’s end.

Challenge your muscles with paved hills and bridges beside Clark Park. Be sure to go LEFT at the parking lot. Cross the train tracks, and there will be a lovely playground and reptile observatory but not your trail. Most of your trail is even tree-lined to keep you cool.
