What we're about
Upcoming events (2)
Let’s hike the 7.2 mile Sycamore Trail first and then the 2.8 mile Sal’s Branch Trail if desired. We will maintain a pace of about 3 miles per hour and take short breaks. Make sure to bring plenty of water and a snack if desired. We will maintain about 6 feet between hikers, but bring a mask in case it’s needed. Note: allow about 2.5 hours for the Sycamore Trail, and about 3.5 hours if you do both. The actual duration may be slightly longer due to the breaks. By participating in this event, you agree to the terms below: TRIP PARTICIPANT WAIVER OF LIABILITY I fully realize that this activity involves a risk of personal injury, property damage, or loss of my person or property. I hereby for myself, my heirs, executors and administrators, and same for persons with whom are in my party, waive and release any claims or rights against Triangle Hiking & Outdoors Group (THOG), all of its owners and coordinators for any and all injury, damages or loss to my person or property incurred during this activity. I also understand that THOG organizers are not required, nor should it be assumed that they are CPR/First Aid/Wilderness Survival Certified and I am responsible for my own personal safety.
We'll be starting near Southpoint and final starting point will be sent out Monday evening. Make sure that your bike is in good working order - tires hold air and are up to pressure, brakes and shifters work and your chain has been oiled. We'll be riding for just under 2 hours and about 22 miles. The ride is fairly flat and shaded and our pace will be moderate (about 12.5 mph average). I recommend a hard tail or hybrid bike, but if you really want to bring a road bike it's ok, though you'll likely be a bit bored. Unicycles....? After the ride I'll be stopping somewhere close, with outside seating, for dinner. Any attendee is welcome to join me. Helmets are required and by signing up you agree to THOG liability waiver statement. Please Note!! Any cancellation less than 27 hours before the beginning of the event will be considered a "no show"
