Face coverings are now required in public spaces throughout NC, whether inside or outside, where physical distancing of at least 6 feet from people outside your household is difficult to maintain. Learn more.

In keeping with the messaging of the American Hiking Society (AHS), founder of National Trails Day, Cary has scaled back its National Trails Day promotional information. You can still find greenways information on the webpage below and via the app at For more information on AHS efforts during this time, visit the AHS webpage.

Seeking your feedback on statewide greenway priorities!

NCDOT is in the early stages of developing the Great Trails State Plan. The goal of this plan is to create a network of shared-use paths and limited on-road connections that will support low-stress travel between cities, town centers, state parks and recreation areas across North Carolina.

Please take a moment to complete the ONLINE SURVEYS (10 questions & map comments) to provide input for this plan.
