The Hike: There are a dozen trails at McDowell, allowing a number of training distances. Our group will cover about 7 miles, and we can arrange a shorter trail for those that are looking for a lighter day. Due to the potential for leaf cover, roots and soft surfaces, hiking poles are encouraged. Restrooms are at the trailhead and on the trail.

Bonus: For those interested, we’ll stop for lunch after the hike at The Wine Shop at Rivergate in Steele Creek. Please note your participation on the registration form so that we can make appropriate seating arrangements.

Bring water and pay for your own lunch. No admission charge for park.
