Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail

The Mountains-to-Sea Trail (MST) is exactly what its name implies—a 1,150-mile trail that extends from Clingmans Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park  to Jockey’s Ridge on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Friends group offers support to the trail.
