Take a Hike!
Who says you have to travel far from home to go on a great hike? Here are forty of the best hikes within an hour’s drive of Charlotte, North Carolina—from Lake Norman State Park to Pee Dee National Wildlife Refuge to Kings Mountain National Military Park. Each hike offers a historical perspective wherever you are in the piedmont region, which is characterized with forests of pine and hardwood trees and multiple lakes and rivers. Whether you’re in the mood for an easy nature walk, a day-long hike, or an overnighter, this guide offers plenty to choose from: · Crowders Mountain State Park
· Anne Springs Close Greenway
· Uwharrie National Forest
· U.S. National Whitewater Center
· Latta Plantation Nature Preserve
· Cane Creek Park Each hike features a brief route description; thorough directions to the trailhead (GPS coordinates included); a detailed, full-color trail map; and at-a-glance information on distance and difficulty level, hiking time, canine compatibility, and fees and permits. Inside you’ll also find a Trail Finder that categorizes each hike (e.g., for attractions such as views, and if it’s suitable for families with kids); Green Tips; and information about local lore, points of interest, and the area’s wildlife.
