Distributed for the North Carolina Birding Trail

North Carolina harbors an incredible diversity of habitats that provide food and shelter for more than 440 bird species throughout the year, making the state a destination for birders and nature lovers. The North Carolina Birding Trail is a driving trail linking birders and tourists with great birding sites across the state and the local communities in which they are found.

The second of three regional guides, the Piedmont Trail Guide presents 103 premier birding destinations in the North Carolina piedmont, most within an easy drive of the state's urban centers, between Charlotte on the west and Interstate 95 on the east. The spiral-bound volume features maps, detailed site descriptions, and color photographs throughout. Each site description includes directions as well as information on access, focal species and habitats, and on-site visitor amenities. Special "while you're in the area" listings accompany each of fourteen site groupings, so visitors can travel to a cluster of birding destinations and enjoy other local highlights and attractions along the way.
