The All American Trail is CLOSED for Deer-Gun Season
during the following: September 28, 2013 - January 2, 2014
To prevent accidents, please do not use this trail during the identified closed period. Hunters may be in the area and actively hunt adjacent to the trail.
1. During hunting seasons, whether on public or private undeveloped land, you want to be seen. Wear bright clothing, preferably hunter or blaze orange for all light conditions. Avoid clothing with fur or tans and whites (like a running deer). Shine a light when out at dawn/dusk or at night.
2. All Training Areas on Fort Bragg are Always Closed! No one should ever be off of the paved roads unless on a scheduled military training exercise, or a scheduled and coordinated activity (such as through the Hunting & Fishing Center), or at a specific forest recreation facility (such as Smith Lake). To do so is a a citable offense, and can be both dangerous to the individual and constitute a serious impediment to our essential military training operations.
Fall is a great time to enjoy nature in the many and beautiful and safe places both on and around Fort Bragg. But as in all activities, consideration of safety rules and procedures must always be Priority One.

The All American Trail is a ten to fifteen foot wide unpaved pathway designed for use by hikers, runners, and bicyclers. Horses are not permitted. The trail (currently eleven miles long) follows the perimeter boundary of Fort Bragg through North Carolina’s Sandhills Region and includes a 1,000 foot boardwalk that crosses Rockfish Creek and its wetlands. The terrain is mixed with sections ranging from nearly flat to fairly hilly. View map
Interpretive signage is provided along the trail that identifies and describes the unique plants and wildlife. There are more than 1,500 species of plants and trees, and over 400 species of wildlife — including the endangered Red Cockaded Woodpecker.
The All American Trail will eventually extend through Cumberland, Hoke and Moore Counties — linking Fayetteville with Southern Pines. Please watch this site for updates.
Fort Bragg and its public/private partners have sought to create a safe, scenic, and educational recreation trail for everyone to enjoy.
