Butterfly Trail at Smith River Greenway


A scenic Butterfly Trail has been added to the Smith River Greenway, a 1.7 mile trail located on River Road (off Meadow Road) in Eden, NC. Visitors will see a collection of 8 large, 12 medium and 50 small butterflies scattered among trees along the trail. Visitors will be able to pretend they are butterflies as they take photos while positioned between two large sets of butterfly wings, along with a headboard decorated in butterfly art. Visitors can learn about native NC butterflies and go on a scavenger hunt on the trail to find many of them. The City is also painting the manholes along the trail a color to blend in with nature.
