Join me for an out-and-back 8 mile, moderately easy hike along Pilot Creek Trail. From the trailhead parking lot on Boyd Nelson Road, we will take the Pilot Creek Trail for 3.6 miles and then pick up part of the Grindstone Trail for another ½ mile to the old Rangers Station where we will have a snack. We will then retrace our steps back to the parking lot on Boyd Nelson Road.

For a maximum of 8 hikers who would like to have an indoor lunch at the nearby Jolo Winery, I have made a reservation for 1:30 p.m.  Directions to trailhead: Take I-40 to Rt. 52 North. Head north on Rt. 52, passing Exit 132 for Pilot State Park. Exit at 134, going around the roundabouts, and head west on NC-268 for 0.2 miles. Turn left onto Shoals Rd. Go about 0.5 miles and turn left onto Boyd Nelson Rd. Look for the parking lot up the hill on the right. Register by 5 p.m. on Friday, February 10th if you plan to come. If you wish to join the lunch afterward also sign up separately here https://phoc.club/event-5094896. Directions to Jolo for participants will be provided. [R-16]
