> You are invited to attend a public input meeting to develop a trails master plan for the Lower Haw River State Natural Area in Chatham County. The purpose of the meeting is to share wants, needs, and concerns you may have regarding use of this state natural area.
> The Lower Haw River State Natural Area, a unit of NC State Parks, consists of 1,025 acres on both sides of the Haw River from above US 15-501 near Bynum to below US 64 to Jordan Lake State Recreation Area. Although informal use by hikers and paddlers has occurred for years, this state natural area is considered undeveloped by NC State Parks since there are no authorized land and paddle trails or amenities. Permitted uses for this state natural area include hiking, paddling, fishing, and swimming. Activities that will not be permitted are camping, horseback riding, mountain biking, hunting, recreational motorized vehicle riding, or recreational motorized boating.
> We encourage you to get involved in the conversation about the future use of this special place.
> This project has been made possible with a grant from Triangle Community Foundation’s Support for Places Awareness Program to Friends of Lower Haw River State Natural Area, a local chapter of the nonprofit Friends of State Parks. The Friends group is working with Recreation Resources Service to develop the plan and is collaborating with NC State Parks and other stakeholders as well as the public for input.
