Get Hiking – Outdoor Programs

Enjoy a 2 mile hike and nature along the Haw River, North of Burlington

Get hiking on local trails around Burlington and Alamance County! Join a small group, guided hike and come ready for natural surface trails, rolling terrain with a few steep hills and a moderate pace. Wear comfortable walking shoes (closed-toed) or boots. Bring a water bottle, insect repellent, hand sanitizer and trekking poles (optional). Hikes generally last between 1.5-2 hours. All ages welcome, but minors must be accompanied by an adult. Please leave your four-legged friends at home at this time.
Free, but pre-registration required! Space is limited. Click on the green “Register Now” button to sign up for the hikes below ( See Link to connect to the site)

 All registered hikers will get a receipt with additional important details regarding the hike.

**A note about online registration**
Recreation and Parks has transitioned to a new cloud-based registration program, CivicRec. When you click the link to register, you will be taken to this new platform. As a new user, you will need to create an account – this should be a pretty quick and painless – and you will only have to do it once. Under your account you will be able to add members of your family for quick and easy registration for hiking programs and any other program offered through Burlington Recreation & Parks.
