Let’s Go Hiking! #78

Let’s get outdoors and have some fun and exercise!

William B. Umstead State Park

September 6, 2015 @ 2pm


William B. Umstead State Park – Crabtree Creek Entrance

8801 Glenwood Avenue

Raleigh, NC  27617

(919) 571-4170


Sycamore Trail

A 7.2 mile, moderately challenging loop in the Crabtree Creek section of the park, the Sycamore Trail will be rewarding as the beauty and diversity of the park's natural resources are revealed.  We will be meeting @ the last parking lot near the boat ramp, past the Visitors Center (between the Oak Rock & Potts Branch Trail)  which is on Umstead Parkway off of the Highway 70 entrance.

Remember, this does not necessarily have to be a Unit event…please spread the word to our Scouting families and promote the hikes as “family events”!

All you need to bring is a good pair of walking shoes, plenty of water and your enthusiasm.

Nature will provide the rest! We hope to see you on the trail. Rain or shine!  And donations gladly accepted to pay for patches and awards at the end of the year.


Please remember to follow the Guide to Safe Scouting!
