The Trails of the Green River Gamelands are a rugged tract of more than 10,000 acres located along the Green River in Henderson and Polk Counties. Owned by the state, the primary purpose of NC Game Lands is wildlife conservation and management–hunting, fishing, trapping are allowed. All information on seasons and regulations can be found on http://www.ncwildlife.org. The trails of the Game Lands are better suited to more experienced hikers. The Trails in this unique area are maintained to encourage and facilitate foot travel only. There are 16 miles of trails, with access in Polk County at Green River Cove. A map of the hiking trails is available at the First Peak Visitor Center. Call or write to us for a copy.
