Join us for a kickoff picnic and hike at William B. Umstead State Park. We will meet at 12:30pm at the picnic area at the Reedy Creek entrance to the park. Bring food and something to drink for the picnic. Then, between 1 and 1:30pm we will go for a 5-6 mile hike (2-3 hours) along the Company Mill Trail, a wooded trail that winds through the park and runs for a little while alongside a beautiful creek. This is listed as a moderate hike by the park.

Dress for the weather and wear comfortable hiking shoes. Bring water and snacks for the trail and food for the picnic.
