Senior Hike

Meet at Reedy Creek Entrance Parking lot (off I-40 ext 287), to hike the Loblolly Trail to Reedy Creek MUT, crossing the bridge, returning to the parking lot. This hike will be a moderate 3.26 mile hike, longer than our Senior Hikes have been, but the pace will be slow, geared to those that want to get out in nature but need/want a gentler pace. We'll be exploring for any signs of spring.

Program Length: 2-3 hours
Reservations required. Limited to 10 people. Please call the visitor center at 919-571-4170 to make reservations.
