We invite you and your company to become our partner in building, protecting and promoting North Carolina’s Mountains-to-Sea Trail (MST).

The MST runs 1175 miles across North Carolina from Clingmans Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains to Jockey’s Ridge State Park on the Outer Banks. Thousands of people explore the trail each day, and more and more people are enjoying the adventure of a lifetime as they follow the trail across our beautiful state.

The trail benefits North Carolina in many ways:

  • building local economies through tourism dollars,
  • improving public health as people walk the trail,
  • protecting wildlife and the environment by establishing natural corridors of land along the trail,
  • helping people experience the extraordinary beauty and culture of North Carolina

The financial support of businesses like yours is a critical component to our statewide efforts to build, protect and promote the trail. Below are some of the ways you can promote your business while financially supporting our 501(c)(3) organization.

If you’d like your company to become an MST Business Partner, please contact Kate Dixon, Executive Director, at kdixon@mountainstoseatrail.org or 919-698-9024. You can also download this form and mail it in with your contribution.
