charleseshirley Oct. 25, 2020 We hiked the first part of Company Mill Trail in William Umstead State Park in Raleigh, 1.1 miles in to the river and bridge crossing and 1.1 miles back out. Was a great family hike, easy to moderate. Forest canopy was nice the whole way. Frequent small elevation changes. Quite a few families with small children having fun exploring. If a hiker was to continue past the bridge they would follow a loop around and back to the bridge. Entire hike would extend to 5.9 miles in that case and is shown as difficult.
