In cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service, the Carteret County Wildlife Club built and helps maintain the Neusiok Trail, a more than 20-mile trail from the sandy beach on the Neuse River to a salt marsh on the Newport River. The Neusiok Trail, which is through the Croatan National Forest, is part of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail. The 1,175-mile trail connects the Great Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks.
