Nash County Greenways

Nash County completed a Parks and Recreation Master Plan in 2014. The County does not have an adopted greenway and trails. Master plan. The majority of greenways and trails are found within the City of Rocky Mount. The Rocky Mount Trail System offers miles of greenway, natural surface trails and paddle trails for our community.
