Jordan Lake - Poe's Ridge II Trip
Put In - The boat ramp is located off of SR 1970 which can be accessed from US 1 exit 79(Moncure - Pittsboro Rd.) to SR1970(Jordan Dam Rd). Signs point the way once on Jordan Dam Rd.
Distance/Time - 9.0 miles/4 hours
Difficulty - Average
Trip Directions - I followed the Haw river channel north till I decide the wind was going to be really bad on the way back. Turned around and headed to the dam and visitor center. Took two hikes on old access roads. The access road to Clark Poe Road was good, the second access road is very over grown. There is a boat ramp that lets you access the dam area and resource management center.
Scenery - Lots of birds, osprey, heron, ducks, crows, etc. Birds were all out in force.
Hazards - Wind.
