Saturday hike at Umstead Park in Cary- Company Mill Trail

Let's get outdoors, hike some neat trails and socialize at the same time. Our Saturday hiking/walking series returns to Umstead this week.

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 10:10 sharp, so please be on time. The hike will be around 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
