Event Details

Outing date Saturday August 2, 2014, 10 AM - 12 PM.
Clemmons Educational State Forest, 2411 Old US 70 West, Clayton NC.

Join the Capital Group for a summertime walk in the woods and tree identification outing. We'll take a mild to moderately strenuous walk on maintained trails, mostly gravel surface with some exposed roots and elevation changes. Hike consists of 0.6 miles on the talking tree trail and 0.8 miles on the talking rock trail, ending at the parking lot where we originated. Naturally, we'll stop and listen to the talking trees, but we'll also observe and identify trees along our route.

Wear solid footwear. Insects shouldn't be bad, but there may be some present. You may want to bring your bird or tree guidebook or a bottle of water. This is not a back country hike and no special skills or equipment are required. Outing is free and open to the public, limited to the first 12 to sign up at:

From the park entrance on old US 70, take the main (gravel) forestry road all the way back, round the loop at the end of the road, park, and assemble by 10 AM at the park map near the fire tower.

All participants on Sierra Club outings must sign a standard liability waiver.
Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, or the parent or guardian must complete the Minor Medical Treatment Authorization and Consent form in addition to the liability waiver.

The Capital Group Sierra Club is part of the largest, oldest, and most effective environmental organization in the country. We’re always looking for volunteers to get involved locally and help the environment. Learn about your local Sierra Club group, what the committees are working on, and how you can actively make a difference. Whatever your interest — local politics, hiking, activism, or socializing — there is an opportunity for you with the Capital Group Sierra Club.

Ever see an environmental problem you wished you could change but had no idea how to start? Join our Conservation Committee, get connected and get started making a difference.

Want to help get green candidates elected at the local level? Join our Political Committee!

Love nature, but politics and activism aren’t your thing? Attend an outing! Whatever your level of experience, there’s an outing for you — day trips, camping, backpacking, urban hikes, and paddling trips.
