8 Cool And Calming Hikes To Take In North Carolina To Help You Reflect On The Year Ahead
Winter hikes in North Carolina can often mean sharing the trails with fewer people than in warmer seasons – and that’s a good thing, as far as we’re concerned. While the social aspect of meeting new people is always an alluring part of exploring beautiful hikes in the Tar Heel State, it’s also nice to have room to spread out and enjoy some quiet reflection, too. We’ve cherry-picked eight of our favorite spots that simmer down quite a bit this time of year (in terms of foot traffic) and are perfect for some peace and solitude. Check them out below… how many have you explored in cooler weather?
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
