Take a walk! Explore NC State Parks, Trails, and more.

Are you stressed by the end-of-semester crunch or the upcoming holidays?  Spend time outdoors!  It’s amazing what nature, walks or hikes, and fresh air can do for you!  We have many beautiful parks and trails in the triangle to enjoy as well as throughout the state.

Visit the NCpedia page, Exploring North Carolina: North Carolina State Parks, Trails, Lakes, Rivers & Natural Areas, which includes links to articles and contemporary and historic images of the parks from the NC Division of Parks and Recreation, the State Archives of North Carolina, the North Carolina Museum of History.  You’ll also find links to maps and web pages for the individual parks, trails, and recreation areas.

NCpedia is an online encyclopedia about North Carolina and highlights North Carolina’s unique resources, people, and culture. It is coordinated and managed by the Government & Heritage Library at the State Library of North Carolina, a part of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources.
