Harris Lake County Park - Hike

We will hike the 5 mile Peninsula Trail at Harris Lake County Park. The trail will lead us on an adventure through a variety of forest habitats, around old farm ponds, and along the shores of beautiful Harris Lake. Meet at the last parking lot (PAST the lot on the left for the Hog Run Mountain Bike Trail Head). There are 2 picnic shelters (Loblolly & Longleaf shelters) near this lot. Bring something to drink for the hike. All who respond "yes" will be sent a cell phone number to contact the organizer in case of an unexpected late arrival or last minute cancellation. Reference the following website link for information and driving directions for Harris Lake County Park. http://www.wakegov.co.. THIS WILL NOT BE A FAST PACED HIKE.

It looks like it's going to be a nice day so let's plan to bring a picnic lunch to have after the hike.  You will not need to carry it with you on the hike.

Since this hike is further away than normal, you may want to arrange carpooling with others in your area.  I am willing to arrange carpooling from the Southpoint area with Chapel Hill or Durham folks.

    Enjoyed meeting everyone. I told one of my "animal-whisperer" country aunts about the snake we saw and she said its description sounded like a Hognose Snake fyi.

    Beautiful day and wonderful hiking. Thank Ann so much. The beginning fall did not frustrate me to hike the whole route. I enjoyed hiking with you all!

    Perfect hiking day, breezy, comfy-cool, and clear. I've never hiked Harris Lake and it is a beautiful facility. Good group of hikers and much good talking. Loved it. Thanks, Ann.
