The Kids in Parks TRACK Trail is a self-guided tour that leads kids and families on the 1.3 mile paved multipurpose trail around the lake at Smith Creek Park. It is designed to turn an ordinary walk in the park into an educational adventure by offering four brochure-led tours: Nature's Hide and Seek (PDF), Nature's Relationships (PDF), Animal Athletes (PDF), and Hikin' to Find Lichen (PDF). The trail is part of a nationwide network of over 130 TRACK Trails in seven states and Washington, DC which inspires kids and families to be more active outdoors. Kids can register their participation on the Kids in Parks website, to earn prizes for each trail completed.
The Smith Creek Park TRACK Trail was made possible through a grant from Kids in Parks and the North Carolina Recreation and Park Association (NCRPA).
