We will meet in the Walgreen's parking lot, and then walk a few blocks to the start of the trail. The trail is a roughly 4 mile loop down to Lake Austin. The trail follows a steep and shaded canyon down to the lake. On return, the trail is along the rim of the canyon. At Lake Austin, there is a community dock, where we can break before the arduous hike back up to the canyon rim. Round trip time is between 2 and 2.5 hours.
The trail is very steep and rocky in sections, so a walking stick and sturdy shoes should be considered. Mosquito repellent is also a good idea.
Since this is a endangered species preserve, dogs are not allowed.
The club appreciates a donation of a few dollars.
