Sunday Loblolly-Company Mill Hike (& Backpack Conditioning)- Umstead ~ Cary Side

  • Mar 10, 2013 · 9:30 AM
  • Umstead Park: I-40 side

This is a fitness hike with an option to carry a loaded pack if you want to. 

Bring a loaded backpack and/or just your great attitude and Join me for a Loblolly to Company Mill fitness/training hike. I plan to carry a loaded backpack but still hike at a fast & steady pace of 3+mph. HIke will be about 7 miles and take about 2 hours 20 minutes.

We'll leave promptly BY 9:30, so please be on time!

DIFFICULTY: Moderate due to distance and terrain.  Umstead Park trails have roots, rocks, and rolling hills.  7 miles total distance covered.
WHAT TO BRING: Good hiking boots, water and a great attitude.
LOCATION: Meet near the kiosk, back right corner of parking lot. 
WEATHER:  If it's sprinkling lightly, I will still run the event.  If it's raining steady or the weather looks ominous I'll cancel this event at least an hour before the start time. Currently looks beautifully clear.

This is a quick intermediate hike but no one will be left behind.

You can email questions directly to me at [masked] or reply here. 

I look forward to seeing you there.

Mark

 

Note: If you're not sure that you can make it, please wait to RSVP after you check your calendar and are committed to the hike.
