THURS MORNING 8AM Loblolly-Company Mill Hike- Umstead ~ Cary Side


Sorry for the short notice but I'm putting together a few morning hikes this week, come along and join me for a quick pace morning hike.

This is a fitness hike at a fast & steady pace of 3+mph. Hike will be about 7 miles and take about 2 hours 20 minutes.

We'll leave promptly BY 8:10AM, park/gates open at 8AM, so please be on time!

DIFFICULTY: Moderate due to distance and terrain. Umstead Park trails have roots, rocks, and rolling hills. 7 miles total distance covered.
WHAT TO BRING: Good hiking boots, water and a great attitude.
LOCATION: Meet near the kiosk, back right corner of parking lot.
WEATHER: If it's sprinkling lightly, I will still run the event. If it's raining steady or the weather looks ominous I'll cancel this event at least an hour before the start time. Currently looks beautifully clear.

This is a quick intermediate hike but no one will be left behind.

You can email questions directly to me at or reply here.

I look forward to seeing you there.
