Announcing a new Meetup for Vegetarian & Vegan Meetup of Raleigh, Durham & Chapel Hill!
What: Walk in the Park - Historic Occoneechee Speedway Trail
When: December 14,[masked]:30 PM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
Meetup Description: I had so many requests for another walk - so let's have another one! This time we travel back in time to 1949. Occoneechee Speedway Trail is a piece of history. It's one of the original (and only remaining from the first season) Nascar speedways. It has since been overtaken by nature, but the grandstands and some buildings remain.
Take time out from the hectic holiday season to see a piece of history and get out in nature. It is an easy walk of about 3 miles. We'll walk at a moderate pace appropriate for any ability level.
The speedway is a loop and there is a short hike out to it. Check out http://www.enoriver.org/eno/parks/occspdwy.htm
to learn a little more about it's history and see a picture of what it once looked like. Apparently it was a rough speedway course and racers sometimes ended up in the Eno River!
Of course walk is weather permitting - I don't do walks in the rain! I will email out my phone number close to the date in case anyone has trouble finding us.
Leashed dogs and children (leashed or unleashed!) welcome!
