About The Sauratown Trail

Part of North Carolina's Mountains-to-Sea Trail, this 26.5-mile trek connects scenic Hanging Rock and Pilot Mountain Sate Parks and spans Stokes and Surry Counties. Maintained by the Sauratown Trail Association, it's favorited by horeseback riders and hikers alike!

About the Trailblaze Challenge

The Trailblaze Challenge is a 26.5-mile hike where participants can tackle the terrain of the Sauratown Trail - all in one amazing day! This is a hike, not a race, and caters to all levels from novice to advanced outdoor enthusiasts.

As well as being an extraordinary physical test, the real challenge is to raise much-needed funds to grant the wishes of children in Eastern NC with critical illnesses. A wish gives children renewed energy and strength, brings families closer together, and unites communities.

By supporting the Trailblaze Challenge, you will help Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina grant even more wishes this year.
