The western terminus is located at Clingmans Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains and the eastern terminus at Jockey’s Ridge at the Outer Banks. Along the trail, you will see mountain vistas, rolling Piedmont farms, weathered tobacco barns, coastal swamps, pine forests, lighthouses and sand dunes all connected by large cities and quaint communities like Mebane.
