Along the Haw River Trail
/MST (EB Miles 22.4 to 30.8; WB Miles 26.8 to 35.3), the route is marked with the MST blaze, 3” white plastic circles nailed to trees. Signs along the trail portion identify the route as Haw River Trail
, and may not be marked as MST.
Along Hillsborough’s Riverwalk/MST (EB Miles 49.2 to 50.5; WB Miles 7.2 to 8.7), the trail is blazed with white circles on metal sign posts. Follow the trail notes closely since the blazes extend along an unfinished section of the trail.
