(Local) Hike Sycamore Trail at Umstead State Park

  • Feb 8, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • Umstead Park, US70 side, Last Parking Lot, Stairs

Let's test some rain gear.  Current forecast is 50% rain and a high in the 50's.

IF it rains, we will hike the normal 7.2 mile trail and have fun testing our foul weather gear.  Hiking time about 3 hours.

IF it doesn't rain, I will give the hike a little extra length and visit some interesting sites not normally seen in the area.  Hiking distance 8-9 miles and hiking time 3-4 hours.

Be Aware -- The Sycamore Trail has is a natural surface trail with hills, exposed roots and rocks, and loose and/or slippery objects along the way.  Good hiking shoes or boots are recommended.

What to Bring:

• Foul weather gear (Rains Suit, Poncho, Gaiters, etc.)

• Water

• Snacks or light lunch

• Camera if it is water proof

• Good Attitude and Sense of humor

Due to the weather considerations and possible off trail travels no pets or small children for this event.

    The map points to a place near downtown Raleigh. Is this correct? First time meeting with this group!
