The Mountains to Sea Trail (section 16) passes right by our North Carolina pet friendly cabins. In other words, it is possible to walk out your cabin door, head west, and walk all the way to Tennessee border in the Great Smoky Mountains. Head east and the trail will eventually lead you to the stunning North Carolina coast. Guests of our Blue Ridge Parkway cabins are certainly not obligated to don hiking boots and walk hundreds of miles; but isn’t it nice to know that if you wanted to, you could?
October is Mountains to Sea Trail month, with many great activities and events happening in honor of the trail throughout the state. There will be guided hikes for all levels during October: some will be under a full October moon, some will reward you with a cookout at the the top of a mountain, and some will simply provide great company. There will also be work parties for trail maintenance or to extend the trail. In addition, look forward to river paddles, overnight trips, and no end to the fun. We are so fortunate to have this great resource in our back yards – we hope you will take time this month to come out and celebrate North Carolina and the Mountains to Sea Trail.
