Mayo River State Park First Day Hike
Start your New Year off on the right foot!Get active outdoors with other Tarheels at state parks all across North Carolina.
Meet at the picnic area parking lot at the Mayo Mountain Access.
Hike the 1.8-mile trail, a relatively easy walk. The trail climbs a slight incline for about half the distance, then levels out and descends back to the parking area. Pets on leash welcome.
A park ranger will lead the hike, stopping to discuss natural features on the trail, some history of the area, and plans for the park’s future.
Wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather.
Have fun and enjoy the park!
