  • 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 (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.

    Sorry I never tracked everyone down, but I recently passed what I guess is the boat house... so I obviously went in the completely wrong direction! :) Why am I not surprised! It took me awhile to even find the entrance. Oh well, this place is great, despite the time it took to get here. Hopefully I can find someplace similar in Durham!

      Hey Ken, sorry we didn't get to meet up with you but I hope you had a nice walk around the lake. It's a good hidden gem in the middle of the city. Feel free to join us in the future on other hikes. :)

    I'll be looking for you. First time here. Walking around now. No worries if I do not find you. Enjoy your hike. :)

    Leaving now. Going to hit the hills first. Heading down to boat house now.

    I already left, but I am still sitting in traffic. I hope I will still make it by 6:15pm. I am coming from Durham, so please start without me. Hopefully I'll find you along the path.

    Hi, I am going to have to cancel for today's hike, but I look forward to hooking up with the group next week. Thanks!

    Due to some time constraints, we'll be cutting our hike short and just sticking to the paved trail. We should finish by 7:30pm at the latest

  • Kim

    I'm stuck in traffic... I don't know if I'll make it on time. So sorry!
