GetHiking! at Umstead State Park (in the dark)

Another night hike, this one on the bike & bridle trail at Umstead. We'll hike to the cemetery and back, longer if you're so inclined. A great first night hike thanks to the smooth hiking surface and wide path (this is what the trail looks like, with snow, on skiis).

    There were 4 of us at the Reedy Creek entrance. Were we at the wrong place?

      If you were at the main park entrance off of Harrison Ave then, yes, wrong place. We met on Old Reedy Creek Rd. (which is off Weston Pkwy). There's no parking lot there. You just have to park along the side of the road.

    Sorry I did not make the hike. I just finished working a few minutes ago.

    Decided can work tonight. Plus, I have a headlamp and others may need to share light.

    Sorry for being so wishy washy. I think I just have too much work to make it work.

    I've hurt my foot, and am a little nervous about walking wet ground in the dark. But I now have a new flashlight and am looking forward to joining one soon!

    I would like to borrow a head-lamp too if there's one available.

    I'm so bummed out-- I won't be able to do this hike after all because of a work "thing". I hope this one will be repeated in the future!

    Could you please let me know how many miles this hike is? I don't see it in the description. I'm still sort of new to the area and have never done any of these hikes. Thanks.

      It's a 2.5-mile out-and-back, so five miles total. It is flat, easy trail.

    Ok, I've finally decided to figure out the "why would you hike at night?" question for myself since it seems to make no sense - yet.

      All will be revealed on the 26th, Leslie ...
