Exploring Harris Lake
There’s a county park a few miles from our home called Harris Lake. It’s actually home of the Shearon Harris Nuclear Plant, which is run by Duke Energy. We decided to go for a hike, even if just to get out of the house for a bit. The 680-acre park is situated on a peninsula near the Shearon Harris Reservoir in New Hill, N.C. – and is convenient to Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Holly Springs and Fuquay-Varina. In addition to hiking trails, there’s a lake for fishing and skiing (or just boating), bike trails (such as the Hog Run Mountain Bike Trail) and a disc golf course.
