Out Parcels TractJoin us for a fall hike on this recently acquired 155-acre property along Robertson Creek near Creedmoor in Granville County.  Robertson Creek flows southward from Creedmoor before converging with the Falls Lake Reservoir, which supplies drinking water to Raleigh and other Wake County communities.  This property is a wonderful mix of hardwood forest areas that buffer over 70 acres of wetlands and two miles of streams that form the core of the property.  Beavers have been active on this property for several decades.  As a result, the site has become a wildlife refuge for ducks, geese, and songbirds that frequent the wetlands.  Helping lead this hike will be renowned naturalists Alvin Braswell and Jan Weems.

The property adjoins the north side of NC Highway 56 to the east of the Creedmoor Commons Shopping Center.  We will park near the Subway sandwich shop in the shopping center parking lot.

Please wear sturdy shoes and field clothing suitable for walking off-trail.  TRLC rates this hike as “moderate” difficulty.  We request that dogs, other than registered service animals, not be brought to the event.
