National Trails Day Hike - Foster Mill Loop + Sections of Rocky Ridge and Southside Loop
Time & Location
About the Event
Lace up your boots and hit the trail with us as we celebrate National Trails Day! We will start off hiking the Foster Mill Trail, and cover sections of the Rocky Ridge Trail and Southside Loop Trail. In total we will hike about 8.5 miles.
The Foster Mill Trail travels along much of an old road bed and features some historical areas where you will see old trestle bridges as well as old cemetery sites. This trail will take you along ridges, crossover beautiful Kelsey Creek and take you right along the shore of Lake Craig. If you travel this trail you will find yourself in the beautiful bounty of historical, cultural, and natural resources that make up Croft State Park. Rocky Ridge bears off of Foster Mill just past the Kelsey Creek Bridge crossing and is open to both horseback riders and hikers. The trail offers several scenic passages through hardwood forest and mixed pine trees. Southside Loop is the longest trail on the park, traveling through rolling terrain, hills and along creek sides.
There is a $3 entrance fee per adult at the entrance gate. Our group will be meeting in the parking area and will hit the trail together at 9am.
