Get Out! (Your Nudge for the Weekend)


Finally, the forecast and the calendar align: we should have springlike weather this weekend.

As we’re attempting to do on an every-Friday basis, we’re here today to get you thinking about the weekend. Today, 40 seconds of last Sunday’s GetHiking! adventure at Umstead State Park in Raleigh: a little on the cool side, but sunny and glorious nonetheless.

This week, GetHiking!, in its various incarnations, will be at Haw River State Park (GetOriented!) and Hanging Rock State Park (Piedmont Explorer and GetHiking! Triad) on Saturday, on the the Mountains-to-Sea Trail through Hillsborough (GetHiking! Corporate) on Sunday. Click the appropriate link if you’re interested in joining us.

Three other ways to celebrate spring this weekend, all at your North Carolina State Parks:

  • Canoe Excursion, Lake James State Park, Nemo (mountains). Saturday, 10 a.m. No experience necessary. More info and register here.
  • Flatty Creek Spring Hike, Goose Creek State Park, Washington (coast). Saturday, 10 a.m. The approach of warm weather means won’t be able to hike through a swamp like this much longer. More info and register here.
  • Stone Mountain Falls Hike, Stone Mountain State Park, Roaring Gap (piedmont/mountains). Saturday, 11 a.m. Half mile hike to the 200-foot cascade known hereabouts as Stone Mountain Falls. More info and register here.

Have a great weekend! And don’t hesitate to post your photos on our Facebook page!
