What we're about

Public Group

The Mountains-to-Sea Trail is North Carolina's premier hiking trail, stretching 1,150 miles from Clingmans Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains to Jockey's Ridge State Park on the Outer Banks. The trail showcases our state's diverse landscape and culture: Mountain vistas, rolling piedmont farms, picture-postcard colonial towns, weathered tobacco barns, old textile villages, country churches, rushing mountain streams, coastal swamps, hardwood and pine forests, lighthouses, sand dunes and miles of seashore.

Come help build a legacy of your own by hiking a trail you helped create and maintain. In addition to joining us on Meetup, we also hope you'll visit our website ( ) to learn more about this wonderful backyard resource and ask that you consider becoming a Friend of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail at
