As part of the Gorgeous Gorges Color Festival, kids cut the ribbon for a brand new TRACK Trail.
The National Park Service and North Carolina State Parks share a birthday this year. Both agencies turned 100! To celebrate the BIG one, the North Carolina State Parks department and Kids in Parks cut the ribbon on a new trail atop Mount Mitchell, the state's first park and the tallest mountain east of the Mississippi River. The trail marks the North Carolina State Park's 23rd TRACK Trail and the 80th TRACK Trail in the state!
