Falls Lake Trail Hike - Sections 3 & 4

We'll hike 5.8 miles from the eastern end of the Falls Lake Trail Section #3 to the western end of the Falls Lake Trail Section #4. The hike will start at the Hike Start Location and end at the Car Pool Location. We'll first meet at the Car Pool Location which is a parking lot at the end of Bayleaf Church Rd. at 9:00 AM. From there we'll car pool to the Hike Start Location which is a parking area at the eastern end of Possum Track Road to start hiking at 9:30 AM. 

The 60 mile Falls Lake Trail, divided into 23 sections,  starts at the Falls Lake Dam and ends at Penny's Bend. We'll be hiking the entire length of the trail via a series of hikes this Fall. Most  will involve car pooling while others will be out and back hikes.

Car Pool Location: 12650 Bayleaf Church Road, Raleigh, NC 27614

Hike Start Location: 13622 Possum Track Road, Raleigh, NC 27614

Reference Art's Hiking Maps of the Falls Lake Trail for additional information and how to obtain copies of the Falls Lake Trail Map. Copies of the trail map are also available at some Falls Lake park offices. This newly released (Feb. 25, 2011) Falls Lake Trail map by Arthur (Art) W. Kelley is a must have if you're not already familiar with the trail.

Portions of the Falls Lake Trail we'll be hiking go through NC Game Lands which permits hunting. Wearing bright clothing is recommended. Remember to bring water and insect repellent.

A contact number will be sent to members who RSVP for this event.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
