We will hike the 7.2 mile Sycamore Trail at a moderate pace, approx. 3.00 miles per hour, with short stops along the way for water, snacks, and resting as needed. The hike will take around 2 1/2 hours depending on the group. Meet at the far end of the last parking lot (second parking lot after the visitor's center) on the Crabtree Creek (Glenwood Ave.- Rt. 70) entrance side of the park. Reference the Umstead State Park Brochure for park information and trail maps. A contact number will be sent to members who RSVP. Restrooms are located near the meetup point and also at the visitor's center.
