FOR LIST OF NORTH CAROLINA HIKES, RECLICK MENU BUTTON AT TOP RIGHT, THEN THE ARROW NEXT TO THE LINK FOR NORTH CAROLINA HIKES TO SEE LIST OF HIKES IN THIS STATE
From the mountains to the beach North Carolina has stuff worth hiking. If you live in the middle of the state though, you are pretty much screwed because all the good stuff is at either end and North Carolina is a really long and skinny state. That being said, if something as simple as distance dissuades you from getting out in the great outdoors you probably need to take up staying at home and raising meat goats cause distance is the least of the hassle with trail goats.
The rest of us will get up at 4 am, load the disgruntled goats and the comatose husband into the truck, and drive six hours to the best hiking honey hole in the mountains. While being irritatingly cheerful the whole time.
