Blue Cross and North Carolina State Parks have announced the return of Hike NC, a free hiking program that makes it easy to hike and enjoy nature.
As part of BCBSNC’s mission to improve the health and well-being of North Carolinians, they have partnered with the North Carolina State Parks system and others to offer Hike NC: dozens of guided hikes ready to be explored and enjoyed.
Hikes are free, family-friendly and open to all ages, stages and levels. A trained guide leads each hike, making it easier for participants to enjoy the outdoors and explore some of the best natural beauty North Carolina has to offer.
The program aims to help people hike regardless of their experience. Hike NC’s spring season offers more than 60 guided hikes across the state.
The guided hikes will help participants:
– Try a new form of physical activity individually, or with friends and family members
– Take a break from busy schedules to enjoy the natural wonders of North Carolina
– Experience spring beauty in North Carolina’s state parks and nature preserves
– Explore the outdoors with convenience and ease without the need for any special equipment
