Falls Lake Trail Hike - Sections 9 & 10

We'll hike the Falls Lake Trail Section # 9 and Section #10 out and back for a distance of 7.2 miles. The hike will start and end at the Hike Start Location, the Shinleaf SRA on New Light Rd. at 9:00 AM. Park in the paved parking lot at the end of the road near the restrooms. These sections of the Falls Lake Trail are suprisingly hilly compared to other sections.

The 60 mile Falls Lake Trail, which is 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 hikes will involve car pooling while others will be out and back hikes.

Hike Start Location: Shinleaf SRA, 13708 New Light Rd Wake Forest, 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.

    Terry (and others), my sincere apology for forgetting the hike yesterday and causing you a delay in getting started. After four days of watching our 3 grandkids, I got back Tuesday night and charged into relocating my mother-in-law Wed. a.m. without checking my calendar.

    Really enjoying the sections of Falls Lake. I was not able to attend the hikes for sections 5-8. If anyone feels confident to lead, I would love to hike them with you.
