Hanging Rock Day Hike

  • March 30, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • Hanging Rock SP

Let's hike Hanging Rock State Park!  Join THOG for a day of hiking at one of North Carolina's most popular parks.

Our day will start at Hanging Rock at 10am.  Park at the visitor's center.  From there we will hike the Hanging Rock trail, Wolf Rock trail, Cooks Wall, and then Moore's Wall loop.  If there is energy left over, we can go see a couple of waterfalls that are a short hike.

All together, expect to hike 10 miles at a moderate to quick pace.  Typically, I like to hike a bit faster and then take a longer stop at the viewing areas.

For those traveling from the Raleigh area, we can meet at a central location and car pool.  Please plan your carpool ahead of time.

Bring water and a lunch.  Plan to stop someplace for dinner on the way home.

See you there!

    Ok. I am soooo sorry guys. I finally got a chance to go on one of these trips and I have been stoked all week ever since I was moved off of the waitlist and I look forward to other trips but it looks like I wont be able to go. I hurt myself tonight and while my pride says 'challenge accepted' my sense says that I probably wouldn't be able to make the 10 miles. So I have to pull myself out of this trip as much as it hurts to do so.

    sorry....I'm going to have to back out. I've had something urgent come up. Couldn't RSVP in time.

    March 29, 2013

  • Jim A.

    Last time I checked I was still on the wait list so I have pulled my name from the wait list. However, I'm still planning to hike independent o 'Meetup' and will be at the visitor's center at 10: 00 if anybody else wants to hike 8-10 miles or whatever we feel so inclined.

    The weather looks good for tomorrow. Partly cloudy with a high of 62. I'm hoping to get some good views.

    March 29, 2013

  • Jared W.

    Guys, I am not able to make it tomorrow. I apologize for the last minute change. I really hope that someone on the wait list can take my spot. Thank-you!

    March 29, 2013

  • Jim A.

    ....I'll be at the visitor's center at 10:00 anyway ready to hike if the Meetup is full.

    March 28, 2013

  • Jim A.

    Since I live in GSO i had already planned to hike Hanging Rock on the 30th even before this Meetup was posted. I'm on the wait list but will hike anyway if i don't make the cut. So if there is anyone out there who doesn't make the list and still wants to hike

    Since it's already be suggested, why don't we meet at Eubanks Rd Park n Ride at 7:30. I have room for 4 in my truck, but I don't mind riding in something fuel efficient.

    March 26, 2013

    • Allen

      Saurabh, yes, we'll be glad to have you join us.

    It's sad but I have a deep cough that may not allow me to keep up on this hike. Please have another one this springtime if possible!

    March 27, 2013

    • Allen

      Aww, Blanca, I was looking forward to hiking with you. I might put something together in May.

    Allen. I'd be fine meeting at Whole Foods or Airport exit gas station for a car pooling site. Do you have a good spot to meet?

    March 26, 2013

  • Allison P

    I noticed something was said about carpooling. I would like to carpool with someone if thats possible. I line in NE Raleigh where 540 meets Capital if anyone is interested. I can drive my car or can join someone else. I can fit a total of 4 so 3 plus me. Or I can meet someone somewhere of I you can give me an address.

    Looks like I may have to work on Saturday. I hope someone on waitlist will be able to go.

  • Larry

  • Emily P.

    I didn't realize how long this hike would be - bot quite ready for a 10-miler yet!

    March 23, 2013

  • Alex D.

    Sorry I need to back out... Just realize you want to go the whole 10+ miles. I believe that's too much for my current fitness level as tge season just started :-(

    March 21, 2013

  • Blanca

    I am not sure I will be here or gone for Easter holiday anyhow but I will stay on the waitlist for a few days.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
