Nice winter day and wanted to explore near home. Richland Creek trail connects to Schenck Forest and Umstead's Loblolly trail. The whole area is part of NC State's forestry teaching program. We could see where the water line was during Hurricane Matthew, made quite a mess. This trail will be really muddy after any rains. We saw a grey fox and went under Wade Avenue through the long wet tunnel. Combined with the Frances L. Liles Loop trail to get in about 3 miles. Not a bad hike, but not great either.
