Meditation Hike @ Johnston Mill Nature Preserve

I've been out exploring Triangle Land Conservancy (TLC) lands lately, and this is one of my favorites.  The address listed above was already listed on Meetup; TLC shows the address as 2713 Mount Sinai Rd.  Be sure you're at the gravel lot on Mt. Sinai Rd.; and, the parking lot size should be able to fit us all, if everyone is mindful of parking close-in, and it's mostly our group.

We'll be hiking on a set of 3 different trails for this walk - heading out in a counter clockwise direction.  We'll start out on Robin's Trail, shift over to the Old Field Bluff Trail (that shifts between woods - field - woods), connect with the Beech Loop, then return one again on the Robin's Trail.  I'm guessing that the total distance is ~ 3.5 miles (and about 1.5 hours).  The terrain is fairly rolling; trail surfaces have some roots and rocks but are fairly easy to navigate.  We'll crisscross New Hope Creek on our walk.  Since this is a fairly short walk, we'll hold silence for the entire walk; there will be time to talk with others before and after the walk in the parking lot.

Here's a trail map: Johnston Mill Nature Preserve

    I enjoyed my "nature therapy" for the day ... also amused to find misty rain on the drive home after a perfectly dry walk. The turning leaves (esp. the bright reds) reminded me to get out for some photo-ops this week.
