Help celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail September 9th by participating in MST in a Day! We are seeking CMC members familiar with MST Trails to hike one or more "legs" of the trail the Club maintains. Go to to  hike a leg between Waterrock Knob and Pisgah Inn or to hike a leg between Pisgah Inn and Black Mtn. Campground. Just join one of these Meet-ups and choose your hike! There are 26 legs in our area and we want CMC hikers on all of them. Barbara Morgan and Gregory Bechtel are listed on all of the hikes because the are the "Event Coordintors, but we need you to do the hiking.
