Burlington, North Carolina Winter Activities

Burlington, North Carolina Winter Activities
Burlington, North Carolina is renowned for its golf courses and throughout the year, many visitors arrive with their clubs, hit the greens and don't see much more of the area. Boasting a fairly mild climate even in the winter, outdoor enthusiasts can often just add a jacket and gloves to wintertime activities and golf courses, like most outdoor parks and recreation areas, stay open year-round. Winter temperatures, though chilly, rarely bring snow but outdoor enthusiasts will know to dress in layers and carry supplies appropriate for activities that might be delayed by rain or wind.

Haw River Trail, Haw River Paddle Trail

The Haw River Trail and Haw River Paddle Trail are side-by-side, multi-use land and water trails that traverses seventy miles between Haw River State Park and Jordan Lake State Recreation Area. The land trail intersects and sometimes follows the state's Mountain to Sea Trail, a long-distance trail that follows the route of early pioneers. The water trail is fairly shallow and even novice paddlers can navigate the waterway fairly easily. In colder winter weather, paddlers will want to stay warm and dry by wearing waterproof gear.
