Hike the Company Mill Trail at Umstead State Park

This is a moderate hike of approximately 2 to 3  hours (5.8 miles)on the Company Mill Trail.  This trail is one of the most accessible trails in the area and excellent for beginners and experienced hikers alike.

Access the park via the Reedy Creek entrance at the north end of Harrison Ave. in Cary, NC. Take Exit 287 North off I-40 between Raleigh and Morrisville. Park in the main parking lot and we’ll meet by the restrooms.

      Hi Jackie, So far, we have not planned many events, however, most of them have been on the weekend. I am planning a couple of evening events on the week day, however, they will most likely not be outdoor activities. What would you like to do?
