This is the 4th hike in the Backpack Conditioning Series- we'll do the Lake Trail which is 6 miles. It will include hills, rocks and roots. By this hike you should be carrying at least 15-20 lbs in a pack, carrying water and hiking in good sturdy boots or shoes.

Information on the trail:

The Lake Trail – 6.0 miles

Blue blazes mark this pedestrian loop around

Lake Crabtree . The trail head is located at the

kiosk next to the Manager’s Office. Two highlights

of the trail are the Heather Lee Carr Memorial

and Black Creek footbridge, each providing a

scenic overlook and rest area. A portion of the

trail is shared with the Town of Cary’s Black Creek

Greenway. The trail may take the average hiker 2.5-

3 hours to complete.

    I called the park number- all trails are closed due to wet conditions. I am going to leave now but I was at the park this morning.

    I'm seeing signs saying trails closed although the park is open.

    I'm not sure where we're meeting. On the map of Lake Crabtree, the park manager's office doesn't have a parking lot. Which lot should we park in or meet in?
