Events and Programs

Hanging Rock State Park offers a variety of learning opportunities for all ages. Typically led by park rangers, these interpretive programs allow the public to gain perspective into what makes North Carolina state parks naturally wonderful. ​

Most of the events are free, though some require pre-registration. All give park visitors deeper insight into the natural world. Call the park office for more information.

 

Help us Celebrate Grandparent's Day by teaming up and becoming nature detectives!  A ranger will lead a short hike along the Rock Garden Trail, while looking and learning about the environment that surrounds you.
