An urban area of about 1.2 million residents, the Triad nonetheless boasts mountain hikes within an hour's drive in Uwharrie National Forest and Hanging Rock, Pilot Mountain, and Morrow Mountain State Parks. Also close at hand are the outstanding trails at Piedmont Environmental Center, Strollway Trail in Winston-Salem, and the paths in recreation-rich Greensboro, which offers some type of park within a mile of every city resident. In the Triad, greenways and city sprawl exist side by side. Trails of the Triad describes more than 140 hikes within a 50-mile radius of the Triad. From the short botanical paths at the Natural Science Center of Greensboro to the 20.5-mile Uwharrie Trail, these trails will satisfy hikers whether they have a few spare minutes or an entire day, and whether they prefer a bustling cityscape or a backdrop as wild as it was a century ago.About the Author:
