Spring Hiking Series: Green River Game Lands
March 6 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Where: Green River Game Lands, Green River Cove Trail
Meet: Columbus, Food Lion parking area, east side, @ 8:30
7-miles, moderate; trail type – out and back
This moderate hike is 3.5-miles out and 3.5-miles back and begins with a gradual incline along a steep bank, but then levels out as the trail parallels the Green River. There are a few ups and downs along the trail, but the elevation change over the entire length of the hike is no more than just over 400 feet. There are several stream crossings along the trail and the trail terminates just below the Narrows…with no view of the Narrows, but beautiful views of the river…and maybe an opportunity to see a kayaker or two!

Conserving Carolina is sponsoring a Friday hiking series this fall, free, guided, and open to the public. The hikes will meet at various locations (noted for each date) and will leave promptly at 8:45 a.m. Hikers should plan to return to the area in the late afternoon, time varying with group size, distance of hike, and drive time. Car-pooling will be organized at the meeting locations. If you’re coming from an area closer to the trailhead, please contact Pam Torlina (email above and number below) to make other meeting arrangements.
Be sure to wear appropriate clothing and sturdy footwear. Bring a bag lunch and/or snack and plenty of water for yourself. In case of inclement weather, call the Conserving Carolina office, ext. 300, before 8:15 a.m. on the date of the hike, and/or check our Facebook page and calendar. Please also remember to bring any medication that you may need in the event of an emergency (ie: epinephrine, nitroglycerine, insulin, etc.). Hike leaders will carry a first aid kit; however, it may not contain specific medication for your individual needs.
Before each hike, you will be asked to sign a waiver form. For your safety, do not attempt any hike beyond your ability and experience. This schedule is subject to change.
