The Mountains to Sea Trail (MST)

“The Mountains-to-Sea Trail is a simple footpath stretching almost 1,200 miles across North Carolina from Clingman’s Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains to Jockey’s Ridge on the Outer Banks.
More than just a walk in the woods, the trail traces the diversity that is North Carolina. Experience ancient mountains and small Piedmont farms, coastal swamps and colonial towns, changing textile villages and barrier islands. Almost 700 miles of footpath are now completed. With temporary routes on back roads and bicycle paths, hikers can now follow the trail on an adventure across North Carolina.”
