Come explore one of the newest segments of the Haw River Trail and Mountains-to-Sea Trail in Alamance County. We will start our adventure with a half-hour private tour of the Saxapahaw Museum to learn about the history and evolution of the textile mill at Saxapahaw. Then, we'll head out onto the Haw River Trail and walk downstream for several miles. Along the way, we will see a fish weir, large Hackberry trees, and the rocky Haw River. We will return to Saxapahaw by about 4 p.m.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. Children are welcome, but please leave pets at home.
