Historic Roads Hike
April 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm| none
Moorefields’ annual historic roads hike explores the hills and bottomland around Seven Mile Creek and Moorefields. The tour is led by Tom Magnuson, noted leader of Trading Path Association. The TPA is a non-profit located in Hillsborough. Its purpose is to find, map, and protect landscape remnants of the contact and colonial era in southeastern North America, on England’s first American frontier. “Nowhere in eighteenth-century colonial America were the roads as terrible as they were in North Carolina,” writes Nathaniel Philbrick in the 2018 Revolutionary War history, In The Hurricane’s Eye. The hike is of low to moderate difficulty and the roads are no longer “linear bogs”. Event is free, contributions welcome.
