(Local) Raleigh Greenway Exercise Walk

  • May 10, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Join THOG for an evening exercise walk. We will start out on the upper portion of the House Creek Greenway, cross over the pedestrian bridge to The North Carolina Museum of Art and walk a good portion of the grounds. We will walk at a moderate to brisk pace with no stops and a few gentle to moderate hills. The distance is approx. 4.5 miles and, depending on the overall group speed, should take us 1 hour 15 min to 1 hour 20 min to complete.

Park in the small parking lot located on Horton St. It can be accessed from either Lake Boone Trail (just inside the beltline) or off Ridge Rd (turn at Martin Middle School). The parking lot is located at the 90 degree turn of Horton Street and has a sign for "House Creek Trail" (parking lot is difficult to see from the street so turn in at the sign).

Any questions, feel free to email me. I will send my cell phone number to "yes" RSVPs the day before the walk in the event that you have trouble locating the parking lot.

** Please be on time, as we will be departing no later than 6:05 pm

    Would like to have walked a bit faster, but the good company made up for it! Lots of fun.

    Will you be starting another backpacking training series again soon? I have not been able to get to one but would like to. If I know far enough in advance, I can modify my schedule..(I usually work Saturday mornings). Thanks.

      I think you are referring to the series done in the Spring by Sherri and Bill. They usually only do this 6 hike series one time in the Spring. However, there are several other organizers posting backpack conditioning hikes now. Keep your eye on the calendar to sign up for those.
