First Day Hike - William B. Umstead State Park

  • When: Monday, January 1, 2018,  9:00 am
  • Location: William B. Umstead State Park | 8801 Glenwood Ave., Raleigh, NC 27617
  • Cost: Free

This will be an approximately four-mile hike that will be off trail a little bit, on the Company Mill trail and on a side trail off the Company Mill trail (easy to moderate at some points). If you only like to hike flat trails, this hike is not for you. It is a moderate hike. Highlights of the walk include two millstones in the woods that were never finished, the old Craggy Garden Scout camp and the biggest rock formations in the park. Please call the park to register or for more information.
Start Location: Reedy Creek Parking Lot (Harrison Ave. Exit 287 off I-40)
