Event description

Description

Now that the days are getting longer, your desire to spend time outdoors increases as well. Our GetHiking! Introduction to Hiking program is the perfect way for folks new to hiking and uncertain about how to proceed, to launch a hiking career! We meet every Sunday afternoon in March into May to hike at different locations around the Traingle. We start with a 2.7-mile hike and work up to just over 4 miles. We hike at a pace you're comfortable with: we always have a hike leader in the rear so you never worry about being left behind. We also provide support through handouts for beginner hikers and a weekly enewsletter that details each week's hike and provides hiking tips and resources. And we don't leave you when the session is over: our GetHiking! program has all kinds of options throughout the year.

Here's our schedule:

March 17 Umstead State Park, Raleigh: 2.8 miles

March 24 Johnston Mill Nature Preserve, Chapel Hill: 3 miles

March 31 Hollow Rock Nature Preserve/Duke Forest, Durham: 3 miles

April 7 Brumley Forest North, Chapel Hill: 3 miles
