National TRACK Trails Day

NC State Parks had among the first Kids In Parks TRACK Trails in 2009, which now number over 200 across the nation.  On August 24, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the program on National Track Trail Day. Join a Park Ranger for a guided hike along our TRACK trail that follows the Jacob Fork River. See how many times you can flap your "wings" like a hummingbird, take a break and look up in the tree canopy, or build a home for a critter out of natural materials. More information on the TRACK trails can be found at
