Hike in Umstead State Park by the Odd Fellows Tract

  • 12/04/2022
  • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • 2232 Old Reedy Creek Road, Cary, NC (Park along Road shoulder)


Registration is closed

Interested in learning more about the location and amazing value of the Odd Fellows Tract and why it is so important to protect it from the proposed RDU Quarry? Join this hike to learn about the history of the Odd Fellows Tract and what we might lose if the proposed quarry gets approved.

This will be a slow-paced hike - expect to stop often for discussions.  We'll hike to Crabtree Creek and beautiful rock outcrops in a section of Umstead State Park that not many people see. This is an out and back hike and will stay on State Park property.  

Hiking boots and long pants recommended.  We will be off trail and in the rough terrain of the forest. Hiking poles may be useful. This hike goes rain or shine.  The total distance is approximately 2 miles.  

An added bonus at this Sunday's event, we'll have T-shirts, hoodies, fleece jackets and 2023 calendars for sale. We accept cash or credit — show your support for Umstead State Park and stock up on holiday gifts! Come by anytime from 12:30-3:30pm to buy merchandise. (no need to sign up if only coming to the sale).
