Hit the Trails

by | Nov 2, 2023 | Events, Online Exclusives

Pender County is hosting two more guided hikes as part of N.C. Year of the Trail celebrations.

It’s almost Thanksgiving, and it’s time to learn how to call a turkey.

Join Pender County Tourism and Pender County Parks and Recreation for the November family fun hike in celebration of the N.C. Year of the Trail and learn to gobble like a turkey along the way.

The Turkey Trek hike will begin in the Miller’s Pond Park parking lot, 12762 U.S. Highway 117, in Rocky Point at 4 pm on November 14.

The N.C. Year of the Trail is a statewide celebration to introduce North Carolinians to state trails. Pender County and its partners are sponsoring one family-fun hike per month.

The December Year of the Trail hike is the final hike. Mrs. Claus will lead the Twinkle Light Hike in Historic Burgaw on December 8. Meet at the Burgaw Christmas Tree on the Courthouse Square at 5:30 pm. There will be sweet surprises along the way.

All Year of the Trail hikes are free. Hikers should bring water and wear comfortable shoes.
