The next outing with the New Bern Newcomers  Hiking group  is going to be at Fort Macon Park,  Sunday, May 19th, 2024, at 10 a.m.

We will meet at 10:00 a.m in the parking lot near the Yarrow's Loop Trail. There are several trails all of which are sandy. I have included a map from the park and a link to another website that shows the different trails. The link shows that the trails are easy to moderate, but as stated earlier, they are sandy. You will need to bring plenty of water, a hat, and sunscreen.

Please note, to reach the trail area, take the road that goes all the way back to the historic fort (past the Coast Guard Station)  In the far end of the parking lot, near the entrance to the fort, you will see the signs in the photo above. 

After the hike, those who would like to meet up for lunch will meet at LongHorn Restaurant on Route 70 in Morehead City . I will need a headcount to let the restaurant know how many are coming, so please let Dottie (dottiej88@gmail.com)know by May 16th if you are coming.
Here is the link to view the maps discussed above!
Please let us know if you have any questions.Dottie and Joe

A new hiking group is being started by member Joe Girandola.

You don’t have to be a long distance hiker. We will be planning short trips to nearby hiking trails with low to medium difficulty. We plan to meet approximately once per month depending on the weather and the desire of our members.

Join us as we explore local sites, get some. exercise, and meet and socialize with new friends.

To add your name to the contact list so you will be kept up to date on this activity’s events, please send your name and email to jagir@optonline.net
