HAW RIVER TRAIL HOURS OF OPERATION EXTENDED

BURLINGTON, N.C.– Alamance Parks is excited to announce that all Alamance County operated Haw River Trail locations are now open an hour longer each evening. Fall hours of operation are 8am – 8pm (through October). Visitation numbers to the trails have soared this year as the community has embraced outdoor recreation and activity during the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent quarantine. Exercise and recreation are vital to maintaining strong mental and physical health and the extended hours were made in an effort to accommodate the increased demand.

About Haw River Trail

The Haw River Trail Partnership was formed with the goal of helping the public enjoy and conserve the natural resources of the Haw River corridor. Founded on the idea of conservation through recreation, the Haw River Trail (HRT) is a land and paddle trail connecting Haw River State Park to Jordan Lake State Recreation Area. Much of the trail is still under development. The trail captures the natural resources, history, and culture of Alamance County and the surrounding region, and serves as a critical resource for connecting the community to its heritage.
