Falls Lake Trail Hike - Section # 14

Today we'll be hiking the Falls Lake Trail Section #14. Meetup at the Car Pool Location, the Intersection of Little Rogers Rd. and Jimmy Rodgers Rd. at 9:00 AM.  From there we'll car pool to the Hike Start Location which is a parking area just prior to the Rolling View State Recreation Area on Baptist Rd. to start the hike at 9:30 AM.  Section #14 is only 3.6 miles long so we'll also be hiking some connector trails for a combined distance of 5.0 miles.

The 60 mile Falls Lake Trail 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.

Car Pool Location:  Intersection of Little Rogers Rd. and Jimmy Rogers Rd. Durham, NC 27704

Hike Start Location: 3400 Baptist Rd. Durham, NC 27704 (Across the road from the giant brown Rolling View Recreation Area sign.)

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.
