Hop off your cozy couch and join Friends of Lower Haw for a First Day Outdoors hike on Sunday January 1, 2023 from 12:00 Noon to 1:00 PM. We will be hiking a section of the Lower Haw River State Natural Area located off US 15-501 upstream of the Bynum Dam. This is a relatively easy loop hike of about 1 mile that includes a stream crossing. Dress for the weather and wear sturdy water-resistant shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. All ages are welcome. Pets are welcome but must be on leash at all times. Please note there are no restroom facilities at this location. This hike is free and open to the public with no registration required.
