Happy New Year join in for a First Day Hike at Weymouth Woods! Three different hikes available make your plans today.
First Day Hike – Paint Hill
Sunday, January 1st 9:00 am
Start the year off right by getting outside for a First Day Hike! We’ll check out one of Weymouth Woods’ satellite properties, the Paint Hill tract, on this 2-mile hike. This property has more elevation change than much of the Sandhills, as well as a rare plant called Pyxie-moss that blooms in winter. We’ll meet at the Visitor Center and caravan a mile and a half to the other property.

Start the year off right by getting outside for a First Day Hike! Meet over at the Weymouth Center at 555 E. Connecticut Ave in Southern Pines for a 1-mile hike through old growth longleaf pine forest. You’ll meet the oldest known living longleaf pine in the world, as well as the second largest longleaf in North Carolina!
