There are some seasonal activities that you can do once and be satisfied. Spring hiking isn’t one of them! You’ll want to put this activity on your to-do list for every chance you get. Spring unfolds little by little, so every time you go hiking, you are likely to see something new emerging from the ground and new wildlife, too. Another thing about spring hiking that is wonderful is planning a trip to somewhere that has a different spring landscape than what you are accustomed to. If you are looking for a great destination, we recommend that you visit Lenoir & the NC foothills.
This area has roughly 30 different hiking trails with more than 100 total miles to enjoy. You can choose from anything from short trails to longer ones. One that we are confident you’ll love for spring hiking is the City of Lenoir Greenway. You can access it from several different places based on how long of a hike you desire or go the whole length for a breathtaking and exhilarating 7-mile hiking experience.
Even if you aren’t particularly into hiking in nature, you’ll find plenty of other things to do, such as strolling among the shops, restaurants, and other attractions. Grab yourself some comfortable footwear, your camera for capturing those amazing springtime memories, binoculars to catch the views, and a reservation at one of the great accommodations this area has to offer, and you’ll be all set for a spring hiking experience like no other. Memories made here in Caldwell County, North Carolina are a treasure!
