I just wanted to give everyone an update on our upcoming outings. This weekend the Club has 3 events, so if your interested in joining the Sierra Club or want some outdoor recreation come join us.
The first event is this Saturday the 6th and is located about an hr away from Greensboro and Winston-Salem. The group will meet at the Hanging Rock trailhead at 12:30PM for a moderate to strenuous hike. It is quite a workout, but the view from the top makes it all worthwhile. Known as the hiking park; Hanging Rock State Park is part of the Sauratown Mountains, an ancient mountain range that rises out of the Piedmont to heights of 1700 to 2500 feet. The 2 ½ mile round trip should take about 3 hours. Good hiking shoes are strongly recommended. For safety reasons group size is limited to six. Please contact Chris at email@example.com or 336-269-1417 for more information, and to register. In the event of inclement weather, or unsafe conditions, we will attempt to reschedule.
The next two events are on Sunday the 7th.
The Neusiok trail runs over 20 miles in the eastern portion of the Croatan National Forest between Pine Cliff Recreation area along the shore of the Neuse River to Oyster Point in the salt marshes of the Newport River. It is part of the developing Mountain-to-Sea trail. We will hike the northermonst seven mile section of the Neusiok, one of the most scenic trails in eastern North Carolina. This section of the trail winds through pine/hardwood upland forest, cypress/palmetto swamp and sandy shoreline along the Neuse River. As we hike, we will learn from local naturalist Dick Barmore what makes the various ecosystems of the Croatan so special. The trail is moderate in difficulty. Wear water resistant shoes and bring a lunch. Meet at the JCPenney northeast parking lot at 8:15 am or at the trailhead on Minnesott Ferry Road at 10:30 am. The outing starts at the trailhead. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
This last event is put on by the Orange-Chatham group, so if you live in the Triangle try to make it out.
Enjoy an early spring hike at Eno River State Park. Moderate hike, about 5 miles. Boots recommended. Bring water and a snack. Contact: Margaret Anderson: 919-493-0397 or email@example.com
