Perquimans County is an equal opportunity provider.


There are over 40 miles of river and creek trails for paddlers to choose from in Perquimans County, with numerous access points. Paddles can vary from a few hours to 2-3 day trips with overnight stays possible on a number of camping platforms accessible only by water. Some of the trails are official birding trails; others are attractive because of their proximity to public canoe/camping platforms. Here are a few options to choose from:

  • The Upper Perquimans River Trail is 7 miles (an official birding trail) from the river access at Belvidere and continues north to the upper reaches of the Perquimans River

  • The Lower Perquimans River Trail is 12 miles from the river access at Belvidere to the Town of Hertford and 15 miles to the Newbold-White House

  • The Mill Creek Paddle Trail (begins .4 mile east of Hertford, also an official birding trail; features a twin camping platform en route)

  • TheGoodwin Creek/Perquimans River Trail (3 miles), a short paddling outing in the upper portions of the Perquimans River and Goodwin Creek

  • The Bear Garden Point Trail (.4 mile from the Town of Winfall, includes twin camping platforms)

  • The Cypress Woods Trail (1 mile from the boat ramp in the Town of Hertford, includes triple camping platforms).
