It's A Walk In The Park - No Experience Necessary

We will hike 4 short trails at a moderate pace; Pott's Branch Trail , Oak Rock Trail Sal's Branch Trail, and Camp Ground Spur Trail . We'll first hike a combination of the Pott's Branch Trail and the Oak Rock Trail which is a 2 mile loop hike. For those who wish to hike more we'll then hike the Sal's Branch Trail and the Camp Ground Spur Trail which is a 3.5 mile loop hike. The meetup location is at the far end of the last parking lot (Second parking lot after the visitor's center, which is at the end of the road) on the Crabtree Creek (Glenwood Ave. - Rt. 70) entrance side of the park. Restrooms are located at the Visitor Center and near the start point parking lot.

A contact number will be sent to members who RSVP.

View the Umstead State Park Brochure for information about the trails we'll be hiking.

    Interested only in the 3.5 mile loop hike this time; have dinner engagement later in the day and thus want only a moderate workout. At what time do you anticipate that you will be back to the parking lot after the 2 mile hike? At a 3 mph pace I calculate that you will cover those 2 miles in 40 minutes. If you wait for late arrivals and have the customary salutations you will most likely commence the hike at 1:10pm so I figure you should be back at the parking lot between 1:50pm - 2:00pm (ball park). Does this sound reasonable?

    Back in December I only did the 2 mile loop hike so I need to complete the 3.5 mile circuit to earn my Starbucks gift card and the free beers. I'm still really looking forward to a venti white chocolate mocha with whipped cream on top :-)

      I'll be there by 1:53pm plus 37.8 seconds, the equivalent of your decimal notation.
