All Trails Lead to the Coast Take an afternoon and walk on part of the Mountains-To-Sea Trail. The trail was developed with the idea of showing how North Carolina is connected from mountains to sea, the same way our water ways are connected. You may complete any portion of the trail to track this stop. Once you finish your hike, use the Tracking Form above to tell us where you’ve been.(If it’s too far from where you live, don’t worry, there are other stops to explore.) Take A Hike!
