The right trail can put you on a new path
North Carolina's hiking trails are as epic as they are plentiful. Plan a thru-hike on a storied route like the Appalachian Trail or Mountains-to-Sea Trail. In the mood for something shorter? Choose a day hike in a state park or national forest, or explore an urban landscape on a rail trail.
