What we're about

Enjoy outdoor activities with other outdoor enthusiasts. If you're looking for a group to hike, walk, bike (road, greenway, trails, or single track), kayak, ski, sail, fish, boat, or some other outdoor activity during the week, join us. Most activities are scheduled between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM on weekdays. But the group offers outdoor activities every day of the week. The group is not focused on any particular activity. We do a lot of different activities on a relaxed level. Members range in age from their 20's to 70's with the majority of members being in their 40's, 50's, and 60's. Reference the group "Calendar" for past and upcoming activities. While members are welcomed to bring adult guests, unless specifically noted, the events are not suitable for children or dogs.

Since we are looking to keep the group full of active people, we do remove members who are not utilizing the events offered. Members will be removed as follows:

If they have attended 0 or 1 event, but none in the past 6 months

If they have attended 2-4 events, but none in the past 9 months

If they have attended 5 or more events, but none in the past 12 months

Members who have been deleted are able to rejoin at any time.

Hike the Bike and Bridle path-SOCIAL DISTANCE STYLE

William B. Umstead State Park

• What we'll do FIRST OF ALL—WE’RE GOING TO MAINTAIN A MINIMUM OF SIX FEET DISTANCE APART. We need to remember that the bike and bridle is used by runners and cyclists and when we spread across the trail we force them to go between us so single file is preferable in some places. The bathrooms are open at Umstead. We’ll do a brisk 5.2 mile hike on the bike and bridle path. No need for hiking boots but bring water. Along the way we’ll stop to admire the amazing wood carvings on the red oak tree that was the old “smiley tree.
