Balcones District Park Hike

Balcones District Park - 12017 Amherst Drive

Meet us at the play scape for a 3 mile hike.  The trail is rocky and hilly leading down to a dry creek bed. The trail along the creek is at the base of a 25 foot cliff wall.  Bring water and wear sturdy hiking shoes.  It's okay to bring a dog on a leash. 

Join us for food and drink afterwards.

A small donation is appreciated to help with SC expenses.  Contact Janis at [masked].

    Janis, I have a meeting at 5:30 near Mopac and Rollingwood. Do you think we'll finish the hike in no more than two hours?

    Join Sierra Club last week. I'm excited to become more involved in the club and do some of the meet up hikes, too!

    This is my first time attempting to get involved with a group of outdoor lovers. I hope weather is good and get to know everybody.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
