I call this a beginner ride even though it is 18 miles because it is so flat for most of the ride. It is about a 90 minute ride.
Lets meet at the Trailhead Ln parking lot at 9:50. Around 10 am we will ride to the Anderson Point Park, (approximately 18 mile r/t). This is a relatively flat ride and very scenic in places. Beautiful view of the Milburnie Dam just off the trail. It will be an out and back round-trip. In the event of rain we will cancel the ride.
The location of the parking lot is 198 Trailhead Lane Raleigh, NC off Hwy 401(Louisburg Rd) ..... It seems this address does not compute in Google Maps but does in the regular iPhone Map application and MapQuest. If you need directions just email me and I will provide.
Directions: From the south take Hwy401 (Louisburg Rd) northbound. When you get to Perry Creek Rd (traffic light) continue on a short distance past a strip shopping center. The first residential street past the shopping will be Trailhead LN. Take a right and continue straight ahead to the parking area.
If you are coming from the north I would take Hwy401 (Louisburg Rd) south to the traffic light at Perry Creek Rd. U-turn and go north past strip shopping center to first residential street which will be Trailhead Ln. Take a right and continue straight ahead to the parking area.
