Clemmons State Forest in Clayton, because it is close, Lake Johnson in Raleigh, but I have hiked Mt. Katahdin in Maine, Little Moose Mountain in the Moosehead Lake area of Maine, Vermont, many New England parks and the Shenandoah River area in VA.
I am a fairly novice hiker...meaning that I don't have any gear yet and have just started to become interested and available for more intense hiking. Love the outdoors and being in the woods is my "happy place." I would just like to learn from others who have more experience and enjoy some safety and support while hiking in remote areas.
I'm a 43-year old teacher with grown children. Have hiked on a limited basis in the past, but would like to go on some more challenging, possibly even overnight hikes in the Carolinas. Memorable recent hikes on Mt. Katahdin, ME, and Little Moose Mt
