(Local) After work hike: Lake Johnson Park - West and East Loop

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Join Triangle Hiking and Outdoors for a evening hike at Lake Johnson in Raleigh on Avent Ferry Road. Lake Johnson Park is composed of a 150+ acre lake and 300+ acres of land surrounding the lake.

    We will be hiking the West Loop (unpaved) and the East Loop (unpaved & paved) of the Lake Johnson trails. The West Loop is 1.64 miles and the East Loop is trail is ~2.82 miles. The pace will be moderate and should take a couple of hours. There are loose rocks, exposed tree roots & stream crossings.

    Please wear sturdy shoes. Well behaved, leashed dogs that can tolerate unpaved trails are welcome.

    In the event of storms, this event will be cancelled.

    NOTE: DUE TO PARKING ISSUES AT LAKE JOHNSTON PARK, WE WILL MEET AT ATHENS HIGH SCHOOL/LIBRARY PARKING LOT. This will add ~ .8 mile to the hike.

    Directions to meeting location:
    Take exit #295 (Gorman St.) off of interstate 40 and the 440 beltline. From Gorman St., head north (toward NC State). At the intersection of Gorman St. and Avent Ferry Rd, take a left onto Avent Ferry Rd. Go approximately 1/2 mile, straight through the stoplight at Athens Drive, and turn right into second entrance to parking lot of Athens High School and library.

    I just checked WRAL doppler again and it is raining at Lake Johnson with more rain moving into the area. I am officially cancelling the hike at this time.

    I have just checked the weather and there is rain moving towards the area of this hike, according to WRAL doppler. If it is storming at the time of the hike, I will cancel the hike. Please update your RSVP based on this information. Thank You.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
