All Roads to Lead to the Pinehurst Area in 2023

While we are known as the Home of American Golf with so much excitement ahead (2024 U.S. Open returns to Pinehurst No. 2, the USGA’s Golf House Pinehurst nears completion and World Golf Hall of Fame returns to its original home), we are also celebrating North Carolina’s Year of the Trail in 2023.

Trail programs are being launched and featured all over the Great Trails State to get people outdoors and enjoying interactive experiences. In Moore County, we have several exciting and family-friendly trail programs and experiences happening throughout the year, including:

  • Pinecone Pathways Program
    • Launches on March 20 and features 100 glass pinecones to be hidden in weekly increments along selected trail systems throughout Moore County.
  • Sandhills Story Trail Adventures
    • Debuts April 11 as an original creation produced by the CVB and features Winnie the Pooh in a series of interactive fictional stories that happen throughout the Sandhills.
  • Carthage Digital Video Mural Trail
    • Begins in May and connects five of the town’s murals with videos about each that can be viewed by scanning the bronze-plated QR code affixed to each one.
  • Sandhills Wine Trail Passport Program
    • Features six locations and encourages passport holders to earn stamps and win prizes while exploring selected local wine outlets. The Sandhills Pour Tour program features seven locations in much the same manner. 

Round up your favorite foursome and come Roam Like Rameses and blaze some new trails across the Pinehurst, Southern Pines and Aberdeen area of North Carolina!
