Umstead to Schenck Forest

This morning, we hiked from the Reedy Creek side of Umstead.  We hiked the Loblolly Trail all the way out of the park and followed the trail into Schenck Forest.  We crossed under Wade Avenue at the "Zombie Tunnel" and came out in Cary and stopped for a cool drink.  On the way back, we hiked the other way into Schenck Forest and took Reedy Creek Road back to Umstead.  We hiked up along Reedy Creek Bike and Bridal Trail then back to Loblolly Trail to the parking lot.  The entire hike was more than 12 miles, more than I had expected.  Now, it's time to let my legs and feet relax.
