WoW Sunset Hike, Mt Pisgah, Durham
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Women of the Woods for socially distanced 2 to 2.5-mile loop hike in the nice woods near Mt. Pisgah. There are a few steep, rocky sections on the ascent up Mt. Pisgah. Once there, we will enjoy the view, watch the sunset, and then hike down (~1/2 mile) on an old road.
Masks required for a portion of this program. When hiking on narrow portions of the trail we will walk in silence > 8' apart for extra focus on nature (masks optional). Space limited to 10 women. We will meet ~4:45, so we can start our hike at 5:00 PM. Please wear hiking shoes, bring a pack with plenty of water and a sack dinner or snack and a flashlight (or headlamp) for the hike down. Hiking pole(s) strongly reccomend for the hike down at dusk. We will be done between 7:30 and 8 PM depending on the group & the weather. Directions will be sent to those who register. Please note: unlike past years, we will not be carpooling. We will start and end the hike in the same location.
Women of the Woods is a program of Everyone Outside. In addition to walking, we will take the time to admire the beauty around us, learn a bit about the flora or fauna, do some exercises to connect with the natural world (mostly sitting quietly) and enjoy each other's company.
