From Manteo to Murphy, North Carolina has so many beautiful trails for everyone to enjoy. The North Carolina Trails Program oversees the creation and maintenance of this wide system of trails that we have in our state.
About the Trails Program
The North Carolina Trails Program originated in 1973 with the North Carolina Trails System Act and is dedicated to helping citizens, organizations and agencies plan, develop, and manage all types of trails ranging from greenways and trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding to paddle trails and off-road vehicle trails.
The staff of the Trails Program, along with the North Carolina Trails Committee, work together to enable volunteers, nonprofit organizations and government agencies to develop trail plans, preserve land and manage trails for all trail users. Staff provide technical assistance, offer grant opportunities, and develop successful partnerships with local conservation and recreation advocates.
