About Hike NC

Mother Nature is calling, and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC) is making it easier to answer the call.


As part of Blue Cross NC’s mission to improve the health and well-being of our customers and communities, we’re partnering with the North Carolina Recreation and Park Association, North Carolina State Parks system and others to offer Hike NC: dozens of guided hikes ready to be explored and enjoyed throughout North Carolina.


Hikes are free, family-friendly and open to all ages, stages, and levels. A trained guide leads each hike, making it easier for participants to enjoy the outdoors and explore some of the best natural beauty North Carolina has to offer.


Hike NC is the next chapter of Get Outside North Carolina!, or GO NC!, which we launched in 2012 to encourage North Carolinians to go outside and be active.
