4th Hike- Backpack Conditioning Series

  • Apr 21, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is the 4th hike in the Backpack Conditioning Series- we'll do the Lake Trail which is 6 miles. It will include hills, rocks and roots. By this hike you should be carrying at least 15-20 lbs in a pack, carrying water and hiking in good sturdy boots or shoes.

Information on the trail:

The Lake Trail – 6.0 miles

Blue blazes mark this pedestrian loop around

Lake Crabtree . The trail head is located at the

kiosk next to the Manager’s Office. Two highlights

of the trail are the Heather Lee Carr Memorial

and Black Creek footbridge, each providing a

scenic overlook and rest area. A portion of the

trail is shared with the Town of Cary’s Black Creek

Greenway. The trail may take the average hiker 2.5-

3 hours to complete.



Map of Lake Crabtree is available to download at: http://www.wakegov.com/parks/lakecrabtree/Pages/about.aspx

    I called the park number- all trails are closed due to wet conditions. I am going to leave now but I was at the park this morning.

    I'm seeing signs saying trails closed although the park is open.
