Elizabeth River Walk Trail

The Elizabeth River Trail is a 1.5 mile pathway beginning at South Broad Street and ending at South Street. Walking along the trail connects residents to vital locations such as Elizabeth City Hall, Elizabeth High School, Elizabeth High School Thomas Dunn Sports Center, Trinitas Regional Medical Center, and various food outlets (ex. Mravlag Mobile Market). An expansion of the trail is planned to further extend the pathway into the midtown section of the city, near Arthur Kill Bridge and Goethals Bridge.
