New Kids in Parks Trails created in Robbinsville

The Cheoah Ranger District on the Nantahala National Forest has two new Kids in Parks TRACK Trails, designed to turn an ordinary hike into a fun-filled, discovery-packed adventure. 

At the Massey Branch Fitness Trail and the Cheoah Trail, both located across from the Cheoah Ranger District Office in Robbinsville, visitors will now find new trailhead signs with activity guides that allow young hikers to learn about and connect with the natural features found along the trail. On the Cheoah Trail, explore the historic site of the 1940s Civil Conservation Corps Camp. The Fitness Trail has a variety of exercise stations along the trail.

After their hike, kids can register their TRACK Trail adventures at www.kidsinparks.com to earn prizes designed to make their next outdoor adventure more meaningful and to encourage continued participation in the program. 

The TRACK trails on the Cheoah Ranger District were created in cooperation with the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation’s Kids in Parks Program with funding and support provided by the Duke Energy Foundation, Graham County Travel and Tourism, and the Graham Revitalization and Economic Action Team. Since the Kids in Park’s Program’s inception in 2009, more than 1.5 million TRACK Trail adventures have been completed.
