We will hike 4 short trails at a moderate pace; Pott's Branch Trail , Oak Rock Trail Sal's Branch Trail, and Camp Ground Spur Trail . We'll first hike a combination of the Pott's Branch Trail and the Oak Rock Trail which is a 2 mile loop hike. For those who wish to hike more we'll then hike the Sal's Branch Trail and the Camp Ground Spur Trail which is a 3.5 mile loop hike. The meetup location is at the far end of the last parking lot (Second parking lot after the visitor's center) on the Crabtree Creek (Glenwood Ave. - Rt. 70) entrance side of the park. Restrooms are located at the Visitor Center and near the start point parking lot. A contact number will be sent to members who RSVP. View the Umstead State Park Brochure ( for information about the trails we'll be hiking.

Remember to bring some water to drink during the hike & insect repellent.
