Greenway, River and Natural Areas

The first section of the Deep River Rail Trail/ Greenway crosses Living Well Community along the river. The next goals are to extend the Deep River Rail Trail/Greenway south to Ramseur and northeast to downtown Franklinville. Eventually the Rail Trail/Greenway will extend along the original 26 mile rail spur to Climax, North Carolina. The Deep River Rail Trail is a popular walking spot along the Deep River, and is a venue for high school track meets. As it develops further the trail provides a pedestrian and bike route to connect Living Well Community with Frankliville, Ramseur, and other points of interest.

Living Well Community members will have access to hiking, biking, and kayaking quite literally in their backyard! Franklinville is also implementing a Texitle Heritage Museum in a portion of a 1838 Franklinville Manufacturing mill. More exciting and wonderful things to come!


Walking trails through the woods will one day encircle the Living Well Community.
