Fall 2019 Events
Join the Outdoor Ministry for a hike at Elk Knob State Park in Todd, NC - close to Boone.
We'll meet at WCUMC at 8:30 am and carpool to Elk Knob State Park, about 1 hour and 50 minutes from the church. We'll plan to summit Elk Knob which is a 3.6 mile hike; 1.8 miles uphill to the summit and 1.8 miles downhill from the summit. The hike is rated moderate for the 961 ft elevation gain to the summit. On a clear day from the summit, one can see all of the tallest NC Mountains to the west and all the way to Pilot Mountain to the east. We should be back at WCUMC by 3:00pm. Leaders will have a cooler available to keep lunch foods chilled and we'll plan to enjoy lunch together somewhere close to the park.
The address for Elk Knob State Park is 5564 Meat Camp Road, Todd, NC 28684. For information and questions email Steve Doolittle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join the Outdoor Ministry for a hike at Rocky Face Park, Hiddenite, NC
We'll meet at WCUMC at 9:00am and form carpools to drive to Rocky Face Park in Hiddenite, NC about 50 minutes from the church. At the park we'll plan to hike about three miles to one of the rocky overlooks of the surrounding area. Rating is moderate as the trail ascends 600 feet, but designed with many, many switchbacks to keep the slope of the trail moderate. The trail provides great long distance views of the Brushy Mountains. Leaders will have a cooler available to keep your lunch foods chilled and we'll plan to enjoy lunch together at the picnic shelter in the park. We should be back at WCUMC by 2:30pm.
The park address is: 3451 Rocky Face Church Road, Hiddenite, NC 28626. For information and questions email Steve Doolittle at email@example.com.
