If you’re getting bored from spending too much time at home and need a change of scenery, outdoor exercise is permitted under North Carolina and South Carolina COVID-19 community safety guidelines.

If you’re ready to get in some steps, go for a hike or just connect with nature, we’ve got just the thing for you: The Carolina Thread Trail.

The thread trail, a regional network of connected greenways, trails and blueways, features more than 260 miles of trails and 170 miles of blueway.

With the trails stretching through 15 counties, it can be hard to decide where to go first. Thankfully, there’s a great interactive map available online so you can plot your course of action.

The map also includes helpful details about each trail, such as if it’s suitable for walking, hiking, biking or running, whether it’s paved, the length of the trail and the difficulty level.

Before hitting the trails, it is important to remember to maintain at least six feet of distance between yourself and other trail users.

Also, don’t be a litterbug! This should apply year-round, but with many parks and trails currently understaffed, trash and litter collection may be on a delay or not happening at all.

So what are you waiting for? Go to carolinathreadtrail.org and start planning your next outdoor adventure.
