Sunday morning walk at Lake Johnson (2 laps) and Brunch

Join us for a Sunday morning walk at Lake Johnson in Raleigh on Avent Ferry Road. Lake Johnson Park is composed of a 150+ acre lake and 300+ acres of land surrounding the lake.

We will be hiking 2 Laps around the East Loop of the Lake Johnson trails. East Loop is ~2.9 miles (~5.8 total). This hike will be on the paved section and does include a section with some hills. The pace will be brisk to moderate and should take about 1.5 hours depending on the group.

Please note we will be meeting in front  of the boathouse at Lake Johnson.

We can gather for Brunch after at Bruegger's Bagel Bakery, only 3 miles from the park in Tryon Village at  8204 Tryon Woods Dr, Cary, NC 27518

Driving and Parking directions:

Parking can be challenging at Lake Johnson, so give yourself plenty of time. We’ll meet in front of the boat house. There are two parking lots on Athens Drive the one at the boathouse fills up quickly but you can usually find parking in the second lot.  An alternative plan is to park at Athens Drive High School, which is about a 1/2 mile walk from the parking lot.  Car pooling is encouraged!  There are restrooms and water at the boathouse.

To Bruggers, from the boathouse turn left on Avent Ferry Road / make a right on Tryon you will see the shopping center on the right after you go through the light at Walnut Street.

      How about if the rain is pretty heavy? I've skied in a blizzard, and have foul weather gear, but a civilized brunch would also be nice.

    I would love to go but have my boys this weekend. My 10 yr. old mostly as my 17yr old will probably go off and hang w/his buddies. I like this group and got together with you all on that one Wed. Hike at Umstead. Looking forward again. However, I get the impression this is a kids-free singles meetup group. Am I right? Or does anyone else have kids around the pre-teenies (10-12) who would like to bring them along and hang out with my Anthony.
