GetHiking! Tuesday Night Hikes
Don’t let a lack of sunlight end your midweek hiking routine — join us for our monthly Tuesday Night Hikes series! One Tuesday night a month, from October through March, we’ll don our headlamps and explore a local trail — a trail you may know by the light of day, but will grow to appreciate in a new light when there is no light. Hike dates and locations: November 20 — Location tba. 4 miles December 11 — Mountains-to-Sea Trail, Hickory Hill Boat Ramp, Raleigh. 3.6 miles. December 18 — Mountains-to-Sea Trail, Upper Barton Creek Boat Ramp, Raleigh. 4.2 miles. January 8 — Mountains-to-Sea Trail, Bayleaf Church Road, Raleigh. 3.6 miles. February 12 — Johnston Mill Nature Preserve, Chapel Hill. 3 miles. March 5 — Brumley North Nature Preserve, Hillsborough. 3 miles. In addition, we will hold two expedition-length night hikes (from 5 to 8 miles) on weekend nights, one in January, one in February, dates and locations tba. Questions? Do I need a headlamp? Ideally, but if you don’t or want to check out the headlamp options before buying, we have loaners. What all do I get? In addition to the seven hikes in the series, you’ll get a hot beverage at the end of every hike (we bring the beverage, you bring a mug). You’ll get a tip sheet on hiking at night, and a list of our 10 favorite night hike destinations and what makes them good in the dark. Cost: $75. That’s less than $10 a hike, half what you’d pay for a yoga class. And it's outside! At night! Not sure you can commit to the full series? Every Monday before a Tuesday Night Hike, if we know we'll have openings, we will open up this slots for $15 per spot. Those spots will be available on a first-to-sign-up bases.

What we're about

Our goal is to help you explore on foot the abundance of wonderful natural places North Carolina has to offer. If you're a beginner, we'll make sure that you never hike alone (unless you want to!). We'll also teach you how to become an intrepid hiker capable of exploring wherever (the rugged Linville Gorge Wilderness, for instance) and whenever (at night!). We're aided in our efforts to get out and explore by Great Outdoor Provision Co., which provides us space for clinics and meetings, and covers the monthly fee for our Meetup site.
