The North Carolina Arts Council and the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Program have teamed up to create this site which brings to the public a “unique series of Agri-Cultural Trails that offer a new and engaging way of touring the Old North State.”
From art galleries to “u-pick” farming operations, these self-directed driving trails can be found in 72 North Carolina counties. Currently there are trails in the counties of the foothills, the Piedmont, and the coast. Use the drop-down menus to find trails in each of the areas. Clickable maps also take the visitor to trails in specific counties. Click on a county map and a new map will come up on another page. By clicking the red dots for the towns and cities, you can find information about cultural and agricultural sites nearby. Information includes a description of the site, the physical address, phone number, email contact, hours of operation, and if available, a web address. The site also has a list of festival and fairs, things to do, and touring tips.
