Hoppenthaler Participates in New Poetry Trail

John Hoppenthaler and other creative writers read to celebrate the new Lake Johnson Park Interpretive Poetry Trail in Raleigh on Sunday, 4/21/24.

The interpretive poetry trail will feature the work of ten local poets who represent the incredible talent within the community. Each poem celebrates the park’s unique natural features and beauty to enhance the City’s greenway experience and encourage residents to reflect on nature through an artistic lens. The one-mile stretch of natural surface trails is on the park’s west side. It is heavily wooded, with views of the lake and plenty of habitats for native wildlife.
