Hike in Umstead State Park with Senator Wiley Nickel

07/13/2021 2:50 PM | Anonymous

Join us for a special tour along the Odd Fellows tract to the historic Foxcroft Lake on Tuesday, July 20: 5-6:30pm

There's nothing like seeing the land in person, including Foxcroft Lake in the photo above, that would be severely degraded by the proposed quarry.

Special guest joining us is NC Senator Wiley Nickel.   

This will be a moderately-paced hike along the border of Umstead State Park and the Odd Fellows Tract.  This is a shorter version of this hike as it will turn around at Foxcroft Lake. 

Hiking boots and long pants recommended. We will be off trail and in the rough terrain of the forest. Hiking poles may be useful. 

Location: 2232 Old Reedy Creek Road, Cary, NC (Park along the road shoulder).  This is a distance along the gravel road down from Lake Crabtree.  Keep going until you see the house on the right.
