Come join TLC for one of our amazing First Saturday Hikes!

This social hike will be a great way to get outside and get moving at the beginning of your month! We hope that you will be able to join us to meet some new friends and learn a thing or two along the way as well. We will meet at the main entrance of Johnston Mill Nature Preserve, which can be tight on busy mornings, so we suggest carpooling if you can.

This is a free event, but preregistration is required. Make sure to save your spot below! If the registration list is full, you can add your name to our waitlist here.

White Pines Morning Hike @ White Pines Nature Preserve
Mar 1 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Come join us for an early Spring, morning hike at our White Pines Nature Preserve!

Register Now

On this moderate, 3.5 mile hike lead by our trail guide, Pam, you will see five varieties of pine trees. This preserve contains species not typically found in the North Carolina Piedmont, but still remain here from the last ice age due to the rivers surrounding the area creating a microclimate. You can also keep an eye out for white-tailed deer, beavers, gray foxes, and muskrats.

The pace of this hike will be just under 1.5 mph. Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a full water bottle! This is a free event, but preregistration is required.

If the event is full, please fill out the form at this link to be added to the waitlist.
