Umstead State Park Hike - Multiple Short Trails

We will hike 4 short trails at a moderate pace; Pott's Branch Trail , Oak Rock Trail Sal's Branch Trail, and Camp Ground Spur Trail . We'll first hike a combination of the Pott's Branch Trail and the Oak Rock Trail which is a 2 mile loop hike. For those who wish to hike more we'll then hike the Sal's Branch Trail and the Camp Ground Spur Trail which is a 3.5 mile loop hike. The meetup location is at the far end of the last parking lot (Second parking lot after the visitor's center) on the Crabtree Creek (Glenwood Ave. - Rt. 70) entrance side of the park. Restrooms are located at the Visitor Center and near the start point parking lot. A contact number will be sent to members who RSVP. View the Umstead State Park Brochure for information about the trails we'll be hiking.

Remember to bring some water to drink during the hike.

    It was so nice to be able to hike with the group again. I had a wonderful time and I really enjoyed having lunch together after the hike. Thanks Ann for scheduling this on such a beautiful day.

    New and would only do the 2 mile. What is the terrain like? Recovering from an injury.

      Ok will give it a shot. I will just go slower if I need to and you can go ahead. Is that ok?

      This is definitely not a fast paced hike. You should be fine.
