Little River (Neuse River tributary)

  (Redirected from Little River (Neuse River))

The Little River is a tributary of the Neuse River, which originates in Moore's Pond, south of Youngsville in Franklin County.[1] The river crosses through Wake, Johnston, and Wayne counties, joining the Neuse at Waynesborough State Park and Busco Beach just east of Goldsboro.[2] Wake County and the City of Raleigh have been purchasing land in the watershed in order to create a reservoir in northeast Wake County.[3][4]
