If you're free after lunch, let's walk the ATT in Durham to get some exercise and enjoy the sunshine. This event will be great for those who just want to get outside and walk without the elevation gain of the mountains. We'll walk at a fairly moderate pace, though, in hopes of getting the heart rate up a little.
A portion of our walk will include walking across the pedestrian bridge that spans I-40 near The Streets at Southpoint. We'll walk a distance of about 2.5-3 miles which will include an out and back walk to get back to our cars.
I may be starting a few running events as well, in the future, for those who like running.
I will send an email the night before the event to let you know where we're parking. Expect to park somewhere near the mall.

Join your THOG friends for the first in a series of hikes along the Falls Lake Trail, part of the NC Mountains-to-Sea Trail. This week we will hike sections 1 and 2 up and back from the Falls Dam to Possum Track Road in North Raleigh.
Due to limited parking at the trailhead, we will meet and carpool to the trailhead and then hike Sections 1 and 2 up and back. The hike will be about 12 miles, so please plan on at least 4 hours. Fit hikers only as we will be hiking at a brisk pace with only a few quick breaks.
1 - 2 liters of water
Good hiking boots
No dogs or children please.
I will email all participants with a Yes RSVP 24 hours before the hike with the carpool location.
