Join us at Reimers Ranch Park, a new addition to Travis County Parks along the Pedernales River. The focus of the outing will be to increase knowledge of this beautifully diverse park with an outing that is accessible to most ability levels. Learn more about the history, basic geology, and geography (including flora and fauna) of the park. The outing will be led by Claire Greenlea with co-leader Nikki Williams.
We will follow the river bluff trail (ADA accessible, crushed granite, little elevation change), going out half a mile to a scenic overlook and then back to the River Trail Parking Lot in two different directions. This will allow us to pass the parking lot halfway through the outing. Participants may choose to follow the path for one to two miles, or less.
Please wear a hat and sturdy, closed-toed shoes. Bring water. Although dogs on leashes are allowed in this park, please be aware that dogs may provoke otherwise contented rattlesnakes curled in the bunch grasses beside the trail. Children who are accompanied by a parent are welcome.
If you are interested in carpooling, meet at 8:00 am at northwest corner of Barton Creek Square Mall, parking lot row C-5, near Macy's. Carpools are not organized by the Sierra Club. Alternatively, meet at 9:00 am, Reimers Ranch Park, River Trail Parking Lot.
There is an park entrance fee of $10 per car which is waived if anyone in the car is 62 years of age. The Sierra Club appreciates a small donation to support our outreach and conservation programs.
Optional picnic brunch/lunch, possibly under a pavilion, after the outing for those who want to bring their own food and lawn chair. Water fountains nearby.
