The weather is getting warmer and it’s time to head back outside. Experience a hike with some friends, a significant other, or all by yourself. There are tons of hiking trails in and around the Charlotte area you could enjoy this summer with some of your favorite people. Of course, there is Crowder’s Mountain but ever heard of Roan Highlands? Or how about Stone Mountain? No? That’s why I am here!

Let’s get explorative and experience all that the Charlotte area has to offer when it comes to a hike. Enjoy the scenic views, the long strides, and possibly the sore legs.
