2023 the Year of the Trail in North Carolina

North Carolina is the Great Trails State. 

We need trails. To move, to play, to discover. 

Along these trails, we lead and we follow. 

We march on our own and we build community. 

We find new purpose, generation after generation. 

Because North Carolina’s trails are for all of us. 

To enjoy, to sustain, and to champion. 

This is our year. The Year of the Trail.
