Hiking North Carolina’s State Parks

Hiking North Carolina’s State Parks: The Best Trail Adventures from the Appalachians to the Atlantic

The Tar Heel State is blessed with a thriving state park system ranging from the state‚Äôs highest point at Mount Mitchell in the Southern Appalachians to sea level along the mighty Atlantic Ocean, and a lot of special places in between. Hiking trails thread through these preserves and are our conduit to experience the wonders found within, whether they are the spruce-fir forests of the western highlands or the noteworthy crags of places like Pilot Mountain and Crowders Mountain or the massive dunes found at Jockeys Ridge. Other parks harbor North Carolina history within their bounds, from the bastion at Fort Macon State Park to the Hutchinson Farm at Stone Mountain State Park.
