    35.939953 -78.579760

  • Look for Terry's Silver Mazda Truck
  • We'll hike 6 miles from the eastern end of the Falls Lake Trail Section #1 to the western end of the Falls Lake Trail Section #2. The hike will start at the Hike Start Location and end at the Car Pool Location. We'll first meet at the Car Pool Location which is a parking area at the eastern end of Possum Track Rd. at 9:00 AM. From there we'll car pool to the Hike Start Location the Falls Lake Tailrace Fishing Access parking lot located at the intersection of Falls of the Neuse Rd. and Fonville Rd. to start hiking at 9:30 AM. 

    The 60 mile Falls Lake Trail, which is divided into 23 sections, starts at the Falls Lake Dam and ends at Penny's Bend. We'll be hiking the entire length of the trail via a series of hikes this Fall. Most hikes will involve car pooling while others will be out and back hikes.

    Car Pool Location: 13622 Possum Track Road, Raleigh, NC 27614

    Hike Start Location: Falls Lake Tailrace Fishing Area Parking Lot located at the intersection of Falls of the Neuse Rd. and Fonville Rd.

    Reference Art's Hiking Maps of the Falls Lake Trail for additional information and how to obtain copies of the Falls Lake Trail Map. Copies of the trail map are also available at some Falls Lake park offices. This newly released (Feb. 25, 2011) Falls Lake Trail map by Arthur (Art) W. Kelley is a must have if you're not already familiar with the trail.

    Portions of the Falls Lake Trail we'll be hiking go through NC Game Lands which permits hunting. Wearing bright clothing is recommended. Remember to bring water and insect repellent.

    A contact number will be sent to members who RSVP for this event.

    My suggestion is to leave these hikes as scheduled since there is quite a nice group already signed up, and let our favorite 'fancy-free' teacher for the week of September 30-October 4, pick her favorite day(s) and place(s) to hike, and one of us will schedule it. :-)

    I could do Sept. 30 and Oct. 2 but you don't want me leading a real hike---it would be more adventure than anyone bargained for!!

    I wish we were starting these a week earlier - I'm back at work on 10/7. And I agree with Tom - fall/winter hiker! AND...."Paris is never a bad idea."

    Glad to see Mr. Crotty signed up! I thought we'd lost you. :-) Hope to see you on later sections when I get home.

      Ann - I guess I'm just not a hot, humid weather hiker. Looking forward to fall and winter hiking. That said, I'd really rather be in France!

    Darn! I'll be in France. :-)
