This is the last hike in the Falls Lake Trail Series. The group is looking at scheduling another series of hikes this Fall/Winter on the Eno River Trails starting after Thanksgiving.
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 or latter) 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.
