For those who want some more walking, we will meet at the Wells Fargo parking lot next to FBC Marion and the Community Building and walk from there to State Street and back to downtown Marion after the peavine walk.

All MTA hikes are open to members and the public. MTA members - BRING A FRIEND! Anyone under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult and all hikers must sign a waiver and provide an emergency contact.


Camp Grier Trail Work Days - November 17-19

In addition to greenways, the MTA supports getting out on the trails in McDowell County. These trails cross though areas of beauty, diverse forests, and are among the most challenging in WNC. Trails in the Old Fort area are among the best in McDowell County.

But trails don't just happen, nor do they stay in shape by themselves. Most of the trails in our area are maintained by volunteers. Here is an opportunity to give back and help maintain trails. Camp Grier is sponsoring trail work days and invites you to participate. Go to the link above and learn you you can help.

The MTA thanks Camp Grier for its support of trails in McDowell County.
