Lake Jordan - New Hope Overlook Hike

  • March 1, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • New Hope Overlook Recreation Area at Jordan Lake

We will hike the two trails at the New Hope Overlook Recreation Area located on Jordan Lake at a moderate pace.

Note: As this is being posted as a moderately-paced hike, if you want to hike fast, either do not sign up or be prepared to possibly hike on your own.

The total distance will be approximately 5.5 miles and take around 2.5 hours to complete. There is an option for hiking the first trail only, which is about 2.7 miles & returns you to the parking lot. There are restrooms at this parking area. Here's a link to the park trail map: http://www.ncparks.gov/Visit/parks/jord/pic...

A contract number will be sent to members who RSVP.

Since the weather is predicted to be pretty chilly, we will not plan to have our normal picnic lunch.  However, we will plan to reconvene nearby for lunch somewhere indoors.

Be sure to bring plenty of water.

If you GPS the address above, it will take you to the intersection of Pea Ridge Road & W.H. Jones Road in New Hill, NC to get in the vicinity of the park entrance. Turn onto W. H. Jones Rd. & continue .1 miles to the park entrance. After passing the entrance-fee station (no fee during the winter months), continue to the right to reach the parking area near the trailhead.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
