Description

Segments 11-16 of the MST offer three options while construction of the MST is underway along the Neuse River between Smithfield and the Neusiok Trail in the Croatan National Forest: The “A” route, a paddling route on the Neuse River; the “B” pedestrian route, known as the Coastal Crescent; and the “C” route, the historic foot traffic/biking route. This guide follows the Coastal Crescent route; for more information about the other routes, visit Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail’s trail guide page.

Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base and the city of Jacksonville lie in the center of this segment. Much of the MST route from Sneads Ferry through Jacksonville follows roads that skirt the massive base. Visitors will see plenty of signs of the military presence—from people in uniform, to military vehicles, to signs along the highway.

There is no signing or blazing on this segment. Portions of this trail are marked from Holly Shelter through Surf City.

For more information about the segment, including camping, lodging, parking, shuttles, resupply information, and trail angels, as well as detailed, turn-by-turn directions, download a trail guide from the Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail.
