Medoc Mountain Lifelong Hike

  • Wednesday, November 18, 2015
  • 8:30am - 4:30pm

We will head east (yes, we have a mountain east of us) from Raleigh to hike the trails of Medoc Mountain State Park. Medoc Mountain was once part of a mighty range of mountains but, after 300 million years of erosion, it is a mere 325 above sea level. Our hike will explore the geology, plants and animals of this rare “coastal plain mountain”.
