Falls Lake Trail Hike - Sections 19, 20, and 21

Today we'll be hiking the Falls Lake Trail sections 19, 20, and 21 out and back for a combined distance of 6.4 miles. The hike will take approximately 2 1/2 hours to complete.  Meetup in the Hickory Hill Boat Ramp parking lot.

Hike Start Location: Hickory Hill Boat Ramp, 4601 Redwood Rd. Durham, NC 27704 (Between E. Geer St. and Hereford Rd.)

The 60 mile Falls Lake Trail starts at the Falls Lake Dam and ends at Pennys Bend. We'll be hiking the entire length of the trail via a series of hikes this Fall. Most hikes will involve car pooling, but todays hike does not.  We'll be hiking the same trail out and back.

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.
