Thanksgiving weekend hikes

Thanksgiving weekend hikes

We're thankful for Naturally Wonderful parks!

All North Carolina state parks are open on Thanksgiving weekend, including Thursday, November 26, 2020.

Opt outside at a state park near you, and feel free to join one of these ranger-guided hikes or explore on your own!


Biological Wonderland Hike

1010 State Park Road, Carolina Beach

Join a Park Ranger at the Flytrap Trail for a hike along the trails. Learn about different habitats that exist within Carolina Beach State Park and how each habitat affects the plants and animals that call the park home. Meet at the Flytrap Trail Parking Lot at the end of Nature Trail Lane. This program is a lot like the Carnivorous Plant Hike. We substitute this during the colder months when the carnivorous plants are dormant. This is an outside program. The trail is handicap accessible. Programs will be limited to 10 people or less. Masks must be worn by participants. Space is limited so please call, email, or simply stop by to register to reserve your spot at (910)458-8206 or


Repeats every week every Saturday until Sun Feb 28 2021.
