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.
