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.

Optionally, we will be heading to Panera Bread Company at Brier Creek just down the road for some lunch after the hike.

    Not exactly sure yet but some blisters on my wrist and I'm watching a couple of other spots. Didn't realize I got into anything. From here on out it will be a Dawn shower after every hike, just in case! See you all in a couple of weeks!

    I'm so sorry, Carolyn. I didn't do Friday and didn't get anything from Weds. How did you get something on your wrist but not on your ankles, etc. Hope it heals fast and isn't too itchy.

    Did anyone else get into anything poisonous on the Wednesday or Friday hikes?

    It was my first time attending a Meetup group and everyone was very welcoming. The hike was most enjoyable and I am happy the rain held out. I am looking forward to future hikes. Thanks John.

    We were able to dodge any rain & got done hiking well before noon. Trails were a bit soggy, but clear except for one big tree. Good group & enjoyable lunch after... thanks for coming out today.

    Well, it looks like we will have some spotty light showers possible this morning, but I am still planning to hike. If you still want to attend, please be prepared to possibly get a little wet. Please let me know if you are not planning to hike. See you at 9:00 AM !

    Believe it or not, I broke my toe today. I just don't want to hike the day after that.
