HK2006-UMSTEAD HIKE (LEARN MORE ABOUT PROPOSED ROCK QUARRY)


UMSTEAD HIKE

(learn more about proposed rock quarry)

Sunday, November 8      #HK2006


Join us for an informational hike in Umstead State Park to hear more about the proposed quarry and to see the proposed location firsthand. The hike will take approximately 3 hours. This will be an easy to moderate hike (with informational stops), and all fitness levels are welcome. However, the terrain is uneven and off trail in the woods, so shoes/boots with good ankle support strongly recommended. Walking sticks are useful.

The goal is to learn more about the proposed quarry and its potential impact on the Park. We will be hiking within Umstead State Park along the border of the proposed 400-foot deep rock mine.

The Coordinator requests that everyone on the hike wear a mask (leader will have field mikes so everyone can hear and still keep 8 feet socially distanced). 


Bring water and snack/lunch.  If the weather is not inclement, we'll stop at a surprisingly beautiful, little known location along Crabtree Creek and eat lunch.


Location: 2232 Old Reedy Creek Road, Cary (parking along the gravel road shoulder).  Old Reedy Creek Road is accessed off Weston Parkway, Cary. Turn right at fork and continue on gravel road driving PAST Lake Crabtree County Park trail head. Look for "Stop RDU Quarry" yard signs. (Note:  this is down the gravel road from the Town of Cary's Black Creek greenway trailhead at Lake Crabtree County Park).


Start Time: 1:00 p.m.          

End Time: 4:00 p.m.

Maximum Attendees: 30

Cost: Free
