The Mountains-to-Sea Trail (MST) is exactly what its name implies—a 1,150-mile trail that extends from Clingman’s Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains National Parkto Jockey’s Ridge on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. About 680 miles of actual trail or unpaved forest roads or beach — roughly half the planned length— have been completed to date. A series of connectors on bicycle routes and back roads knit together finished sections to span the state.
The guides give detailed hiking directions, going both east and west; information about where to get supplies, lodging, camping, food, and water along the trail; and parking locations, complete with GPS coordinates.
Whether you want a short walk or hike with your family near your house, a weekend backpacking trip, or a challenging, inspiring trek across the entire length of the state trail, these guides will prove essential.
