When it comes to scenery, the Triangle sure has more than three sides. In and around the Triangle, you can take hikes that wind through river walks, poplar trees and holly forests. Hikes that explore bluffs, lake coves and wetlands. Morning till sunset, there’s a hike and a view for you!
Unless otherwise noted, the only things you will need are drinking water and comfortable walking or athletic shoes. Don’t forget to register for your hike. We’re excited you’re joining us!
