First Day of Spring Hike

Jordan Lake Poplar Point campground

First Day of Spring Hike

Join us as we celebrate the first day of spring with a hike on the trails at Seaforth! The hike is an easy 1.4 mile trail that is nearly a loop. It begins at the display case on the western side of the beach parking lot and ends near the picnic shelter #9 (Look for the Hike NC! flag at the trailhead). Hikers will enjoy glimpses of the lake while walking thru Loblolly Pine forests, hardwood forests, an old field and past 3 ponds. A long boardwalk traverses a wetland teaming with Buttonbush, Black Needle Rush and other water-loving vegetation. This is a perfect hike for beginner level hikers looking to go sightseeing. Please bring water and dress for the weather. This hike is part of the Hike NC! initiative.
