Saturday hike at Umstead Park in Cary- Company Mill Trail

Park officials have determined to open the park at 10:30, so...

Let's get outdoors, hike some neat trails and socialize at the same time.

We will hike the Company Mill Trail in Umstead Park for approximately 6 miles. This is a scenic but moderately challenging trail: quite a few roots, rocks and uneven ground, so either hiking boots or sturdy footware is advised.  However we’re not fording streams or climbing rocks, this will be a nice, moderately paced hike. Please dress appropriately for hiking and bring water if you would like to have it on the trail.

Driving and Parking directions:

We’ll meet in parking lot for Umstead Park that is right off of Harrison Avenue. Take exit 287 off I-40 and head in the direction opposite of downtown Cary and you’ll be in the Park and at the parking lot (there are restrooms and a water fountain at the parking lot).  Meeting area is at the main trail entrance.  Drive through parking lot to far left side, where you will see signs for the trail entrances. We will leave at 12:10 sharp, so please be on time. The hike will be around 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
