We'll hike a 4.44-mile stretch of the MST along Reedy Fork Creek and Lake Townsend, a stretch that piggybacks on Greensboro's Laurel Bluff Trail and Crockett Trail. We'll meet near the Lake Brandt Marina, shuttle to the Crockett Trail trailhead on N. Church Street, and hike west, initially along Lake Townsend, eventually along Reedy Fork Creek, back to our meeting place. There is a modicum of up and down on this hike; coupled with the distance it should be considered of moderate difficulty.
Wear hiking shoes or boots for this hike; bring two liters of water. Bring a snack or two as well. We accommodate all paces on our hikes.
