I was excited to lead a women’s hike on June 2, National Trails Day!
National Trails Day is an annual initiative of the American Hiking Society to encourage everyone to experience the great outdoors. Events are held across the country.
We explored the lovely Mountain Loop Trail at the Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area in Hillsborough, N.C. This scenic trail goes through the woods, along the peaceful Eno River, and up to the overlook where you can sit on the rocks or benches and see for miles across Orange County.
We had a great time enjoying the scenery and weather, and most of all each other’s company. It was wonderful to make new friends and connect, and to do so in a beautiful environment. So good for the body and spirit.
I look forward to doing more events like this. In fact, I’m planning a Fall series of local hikes! Join my hiking mailing list here for more info.
