Update: Here’s a nice note from Kate Dixon, Executive Director, Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail“
“October is such a great month to explore the Mountains-to-Sea Trail. I hope Sierra Club members will get out to hike some of the newly built trail – near Boone, in Pilot Mountain State Park, along the Haw and Eno rivers and Falls Lake. There’s so much to see in our beautiful state! Visit www.ncmst.org for more information about the trail.”
This is a perfect time to get out and enjoy NC. Why not find a new place to hike and celebrate Mountains-to-Sea Trail Month. Even better, sign up for a Trail Workdays and be a part of trail history!
The Mountains-to-Sea Trail brings us together on a path to learning, enjoying and preserving the natural heritage of the Tar Heel state. This living outdoor laboratory that spans the border of our state offers us a venue to focus on stewardship and to chart a course for the natural trust we hold for future generations.

With your help the MST now consists of 500+ miles of dedicated trail, roughly half the planned length, and is open for hiking.
