Saturday hike at Lake Johnson Park, Raleigh

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

The Saturday hiking series continues at Johnson Lake Park this week. We will hike around Johnson Lake for approximately 6 miles, covering both the East (paved) and West (unpaved) loops. The unpaved loop has quite a few roots, rocks and uneven ground, so either hiking boots or sturdy footware is advised.  Please dress appropriately for hiking and bring water if you would like to have it on the trail.


After the hike we can meet for coffee at Cup-A-Joe [masked] Avent Ferry Road Raleigh, NC 27606), in Mission Valley.



We will leave at 10:10 sharp, so please be on time. The hike will run approximately 2 hours.

    I am going to try to make it - but it is up to my plantar fasciitis whether I do. I hope to, though!
