Saturday, May 26, 2012 - 7:00pm

The Mount Jefferson State Natural Area TRACK Trail is located on the Rhododendron Trail that begins at the upper parking lot and climbs gently toward the summit of Mount Jefferson and Luther Rock. The trail is a 1.1-mile long loop trail with one short out-and-back section leading the way to Luther Rock. Please use caution when visiting the peaks.

“We are excited to have partnered with North Carolina State Parks on our 3rd TRACK Trail together,” said Kids in Parks director Jason Urroz. “The network of TRACK Trails we have formed within the state parks and other land management agencies in the region are giving kids and families from the area multiple options to get outdoors and connected to the resources and special places that make this region so wonderful. From New River State Park, to Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia, to W. Kerr Scott Dam and Reservoir in Wilkesboro and now at Mount Jefferson’s State Natural Area, the region’s network is one of the strongest networks of TRACK Trails in the program.”

“Mt. Jefferson State Natural Area is excited about adding the TRACK Trails program to park activities.” said Mt. Jefferson Superintendent Tom Randolph.
