100 Mile Challenge Hike

100 miles … can you do it? Many park visitors are trying to do just that; hike 100 miles in 2017 to celebrate the centennial of the parks system in North Carolina. Meet Ranger Kevin Bischof as he leads a hike in late Fall to study the leaves after they have fallen for the year. The 4-mile, moderate hike will trek around the Mill’s Creek Trail and return on the Paddy’s Creek Trail. Meet at 1 p.m. in the Paddy’s Creek Area, near the East Picnic Shelter.
