Trails in Polk County have something to offer anyone who is interested in leisurely walks, strenuous hikes, mountain biking, birdwatching, trail running, exercising the dog, or simply enjoying nature.

Polk County is located in Southwest North Carolina in a transition zone between the Blue Ridge mountains and the Piedmont.  Despite being one of the smallest counties in North Carolina, Polk is home to a wide variety of publicly accessible land and waterways. There is a strong rural character to this area and opportunities for outdoor recreation abound.

The trails program is constantly expanding and several new trails are under construction or in the planning and design phase. For the most up to date information and opportunities, please contact  to join our email list and receive the monthly newsletter.

You may also wish to attend one of the Polk County Parks & Recreation Community Trails Meetings held monthly the fourth Monday of the month at Saluda Outfitters at 6 p.m.
