Croatan National Forest Bike Ride
Friday, September 7, 2012 at 9am, New Bern locals are hosting a scenic bike ride through the Croatan Nattional Forest. The ride will be on dirt roads through the forest so you must have a mountain bike or a hybrid bike with wide tires. This will be a casual sightseeing ride. The overall pace will be determined by the group and there will be two leaders. This is usually a 16 to 18 mile ride so plan accordingly, bring water and a snack.
The Croatan Forest is a large and diverse natural area located between Swansboro, Newport and New Bern. This site is bounded on three sides by rivers; the White Oak to the South, the Neuse to the north, and the Trent to the west. Highway 24 forms the eastern boundary. The Croatan includes one of North Carolina's largest and best examples of pocosin and a diverse array of habitat types that support a corresponding diversity of bird life. A system of roads, most unpaved, and hiking trails allow access to many areas of the National Forest. Email Bill Sadler at firstname.lastname@example.org or John Klecker at email@example.com for more information.
