Company Mill Trail — William B.Umstead State Park Professional Review and Guide

"If you have more time to spend exploring William B. Umstead State Park with the dogs than the short, 20-minute trip around the Inspiration Trail the Company Mill Trail is a good choice.

Starting at the same trailhead as the Inspiration Trail, this loop extends nearly 6 miles and takes at least three leisurely hours to complete as it winds through deep woods and crosses scenic creeks, to every dog’s delight. Bicycles and horses are prohibited on the park’s hiking trails, making the trails safer for hiking with dogs."

This is more like a 6.1 - 6.2 mile route (used my GPS on this and stayed on the route). Nice pass by the river on a few areas of the trail, not much other scenery but good for working some uphill areas and improving your stamina if you are starting out and can do a moderate pace. My first hike on this trail and kept a pace between 3.4 and 4.2 mph even with a couple of stops. Finished in just under two hours.
