Wildflower Hike at Moorefields

April 10, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Come spend a spring day at Hillsborough’s Historic Moorefields. This idyllic site sits at 2201 Moorefields Road, Hillsborough on 70 beautiful acres just 20 minutes from downtown Chapel Hill and Durham, NC, and a short drive from downtown Hillsborough.

The annual spring wildflower hike is scheduled for Sunday, April 10. The hike explores the ridges and bottomlands proximate to Seven Mile Creek, one of Orange County’s most significant and undisturbed natural areas. The hike leader is Milo Pyne, an N.C. State-trained botanist and an expert on Piedmont wildflowers. The hike leaves Moorefields at 2 pm.

All spring hikes and the open house tours are free. A suggested donation goes to the Friends of Moorefields to help coordinate events such as these.

Moorefields was built in 1785 as a summer home by Alfred Moore, a military, educational and judicial leader who ultimately served as the second and last North Carolinian on the U.S. Supreme Court. The property adjoins the trail and other amenities of Orange County’s 300-acre Seven Mile Creek Nature Preserve.  For more information, visit https://moorefields.org/ .
