Let’s make it a “Green Friday” with a morning hike at Anne Springs Close Greenway in nearby Fort Mill. Get some post-Thanksgiving exercise!
Here are the details:
Anne Springs Close Greenway – Friday November 27, 2015
Fort Mill, SC
Start: 9:00 AM End: About 12:00 Noon
Sierra Club Hike Leader: Steve Copulsky
Cost: $5 fee per person paid to Greenway at entrance (property is run as a non-profit).
Please bring exact amount in cash – you might have to stuff it in a drop box.
Hike Details: This hike is a nice 6 mile loop through the woods of this 2,100 acre
nature preserve in nearby Fort Mill. We’ll cross 3 swinging bridges and pass by two
19th century log cabins, including one that belonged to Billy Graham’s grandfather. The land is fairly level, but it’s a trail through the woods, not a flat paved greenway such as those in Mecklenburg County.
Hike Level: Easy to Moderate
What to Bring: It can get muddy in a few spots if there has been any rain, so hiking
boots are recommended. Shoes with good treads are okay, but no smooth soles. Bring water. Bring a rain jacket if there’s a chance of rain.
Limit 20 hikers. People-friendly dogs are okay, but the Greenway requires that they must remain on a leash at all times.

Participants on Sierra Club outings are required to sign a standard liability waiver which will be available at the trailhead.
