The group Everyone Outside will be holding a hike on Saturday, Sept. 28, at 5:30 p.m. in honor of the Durham Fair. Here's a description of the event:
"Join us for a short hike up Mt. Pisgah in southern Durham. We will hike up, have a picnic dinner, enjoy the sunset and watch the lights of the fair including the Ferris wheel spinning."
"This is a great way to clear your head after a busy day at the fair or just enjoy the fair from a distance. We will hike up a short (1/2 mile), occasionally steep way on the blue trail off of Pisgah Rd. We will hike down a mostly gradual old dirt road. We will bring flashlights, but we probably won't need them. Please wear sturdy shoes and bring a pack with water, a picnic dinner, flashlight(s) and layers for when it cools off."
"It will be important to leave a little extra time to get to the trailhead if you are coming from the North and/or take a different route to avoid the traffic near Durham Fair; I can provide alternate directions if you would like. We will meet at ~5:20 PM so we can be ready to start hiking by 5:30 PM. Registration is required."
