New section Mountains to Sea Trail opens along the Haw River

Thanks and congratulations to Alamance County and Mountains to Sea Trail Friends volunteers for completing another four miles of trail, known as the Sellers Falls Section, along the Haw River near Burlington, NC.

This new stretch of trail brings the total continuous miles of MST in this area to eight, and this is in addition to several shorter sections of trail along the Haw that they hope to incorporate soon into the route that hikers use to complete the trek across the state.

Alamance County and the towns along the Haw have been extraordinary leaders in the effort to the build the MST. Almost all of this trail has opened in the last eight years after they made a commitment to protect the river and make it accessible for walking and paddling.

Friends of MST is also eagerly awaiting the July, 2016 opening of a new bridge in Hillsborough, NC that will connect the Riverwalk section through downtown Hillsborough to the Occonnechee Speedway Trail and MST along mountain laurel bluffs overlooking the Eno River.
