Completing the entire MST
There are two ways to complete the MST: a thru-hike or a section hike.
Thru-hiking is a continuous hike of the entire route in one long outing. Section hiking is tackling shorter sections in any given length of time. No matter which way you chose, either way counts as a completion.
40 Hike Challenge
Discover NC a stretch at a time by successfully completing every hike outlined in the new guide, Great Day Hikes on North Carolina’s Mountains-to-Sea Trail. You will experience a broad cross section of the state and the MST when tackling the challenge and will receive a patch when you finish all 40 hikes.
