Hey! Let's get outside, exercise and socialize at the same time.
Would you like to hike at a moderate pace with your RDU Singles friends. This is approximately 7-8 mile walk. I say again this is a moderate pace walk, we are not setting any land speed records here, the goal is to socialize and meet everyone along the way. Let's mix and mingle during the walk and talk with everyone. You can grab a cup of coffee beforehand at Beantraders if you like and maybe afterwards as well.
Let's meet in the parking area in front of the Souper Salad in the Southpoint Crossing Shopping Center (Kroger) and we can then proceed to the American Tobacco Trail (ATT) head at end of parking lot. We will be walking ~3.5-4 miles on the ATT then we will turn back for a total hike of 7-8 miles.
These trails are all fully paved, usually shaded, no uneven ground. (See picture here of ATT)
Dress appropriately, wear good walking shoes, hat, and bring water and a good attitude.
Directions: To get to Southpoint Crossing take the Fayetteville St. exit (Exit 276) off of I-40 and head north towards Durham (Southpoint Mall is south- wrong way). Proceed past 1st signal light (NC 54) and turn left at 2nd signal light (will see sign for Southpoint Crossing) and you will see Souper Salad and ATT Trail parking in front of you. We will be parking and meeting in front of Souper Salad.
We will attempt to head out around 10:10... please do not be late!! We should be back around 11:45-12:00
Coffee is available before and after the hike @ Bean Traders which is in the shopping center across the street (NC 54) from Kroger (next to Harris Teeter)
