After work hike at Johnston Mill Nature Preserve

Johnston Mill Nature preserve is one of great natural spots in the Triangle preserved by the Triangle Land Conservancy. The 296-acre preserve includes a quiet stretch of floodplain forest along New Hope Creek snuggled up to an impressive stand of beech trees on a steep bluff. Lots of variety for a 3-mile hike.

    We're two-for-two both weatherwise and in terms of great trail — we'll try to continue the streak next week on the Sal's Branch Trail at Umstead. Twenty-nine hikers last night — great crowd!

    I enjoyed this great hike on a cool evening. This was a beautiful place to hike and it was great meeting and chatting with fellow outdoor enthusiasts.

    Did you schedule two hikes for the same day? One at Umstead, one in CH?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
