Murray's Mill Hike and Picnic
Sat. June 19, 8am - 12:30 pm
All ages invited! Bring a friend!
Join the WCUMC Outdoor Ministry for this hike and picnic lunch at Historic Murray's Mill in Catawba, NC. Meet at the church at 8:30 am to caravan to Murray's Mill - which has 15 acres of green lawn for running around. There are two hiking trails: one along the creek and one around the pond. As you head around the pond, keep an eye open for shy, yet active, beavers. The eastern side of the pond is part of the Carolina Thread Trail. The locals include osprey, turkey vultures, hawks, great blue herons, cranes, and many different song birds. Bring your picnic lunch & drink as there are 9 picnic tables under the large oaks next to the General Store that are perfect for a picnic. We'll be done by 12:30pm. Safe protocols will be followed. Masks are optional. Larry & Cindy McGinnis will be leading this hike.
