Meet the Trail TRACKer of the Month

What’s your favorite TRACK Trail? Why?

  • "Grandfather Mountain. There is a bridge where you are up super high and big rocks to climb. When you are done, you get to check out some animals too." 
What’s your favorite TRACK Trail brochure adventure?

  • "I like the ones with word searches. Anyone can do it because you find a pattern with the letters. It's like you're a detective."
What’s the most exciting wildlife you’ve seen on a TRACK Trail?

  • "My favorite animal is the otter. We saw that at the Grandfather Mountain Zoo park. We heard a rattlesnake during our picnic at Grandfather Mountain and we saw deer too."
What’s the longest hike you’ve ever done?

  • "Our longest hike was Morrow Mountain. It was so high up and had a lot of stairs to get to the lookout point. We had to take lots of breaks."
What is the coolest trail experience you’ve ever had?

  • "The coolest trail was Chimney Rock because there was a cave and I went under the waterfall at the top of the hike. I liked riding the elevator up to the beginning of the hike too."
If you could hike anywhere in the world, where would you go?

  • "I would like to hike in Hawaii and hike on top of a volcano, just like Moana did in the movie."
Do you have any tips for other Trail TRACKers?

  • "Stay safe. Walk by your family. We make a sandwich when we walk, mom first, then me, then my dad in the back."
