Golden Trails

The Carrboro Recreation, Parks, & Cultural Resources Department Golden Trails Series is an adult walking group that gets you out on local trails and rewards you with the company of others, light exercise and the joy of being in nature. Transportation is provided by van from Carrboro Town Hall. Binoculars are always encouraged. Bring water! As with any exercise, your physician’s recommendation for your participation is encouraged. Pre-registration is required! Walk-in registration only! Registration for programs is accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please check our current program brochure or our online registration system for more information about each program.
