Rescheduled! Hike at Spyglass (Dogs Welcome!)

I love this hike! It's really fun! It's also a perfect place to bring your dogs! There are hills, creek beds, rocks, caves and lots of beautiful trees! It's around a 2-3 mile hike, with a few intense inclines. For those who bring pets, please be sure you bring them water! There isn't any drinking water for pets on this hike.


We will take breaks, so we'll all get a chance to chat and get to know one another. You will also want to bring at least 1 water bottle for yourself, and any energizing snacks you may want during breaks. We usually bring things like an orange, nuts, trail mix, jerkys etc...


****Please Arrive at 11:45, so we can get everyone together before we head out. We will be setting out on the hike at 12 (noon). You may want to give yourself a little extra time to find a parking spot, but we found one pretty easily.***


It will be lots of fun, so please bring a positive attitude and a smile!!! :)


I will be standing at the beginning of the trail where the map for the trail is located, so as soon as you walk down towards the trail you should be able to see me!


We will be eating lunch at Opal Divine's afterwards, Address: Opal Divine's Penn Field 3601 S Congress Ave Austin, TX 78704 If you haven't been here, it's dog and large group friendly, with delicious food! A great way to get to talk to more people in the group! Hope to see you there :)

    Hey everyone!
    We've decided to go ahead and have the hike! I know it is calling for rain, but it looks like it's just suppose to be cloudy during the hours of our hike. However, the weather really never does what the forecast is calling for, so I expect we might get some rain or drizzle. I would suggest wearing shoes that have good traction and you don't mind getting muddy! You may also want to pack a raincoat :) There are a few inclines and declines but we will move along them slowly. We totally understand if you choose not to come, because it will be a little more slippery than usual. It seems like it going to rain every Saturday now, so we're just going to brave it! It won't be our first hike in the rain and probably not our last haha :)
    Hope to see you soon!

    Weather is not looking good again.

  • Zac C.

    Wait lists? Seems like there shouldnt be a limit on how many can go.. (Since most that say they are probably wont show up anyways)

    1 · March 20

    • Zac C.

      That makes sense. I guess i didnt realize that there were THAT many people going on these things! Itll make it that much more fun next time. We have a car group that gets together a few times a month and 40 people will say they are going, then only 5 show up.. Glad to hear this isnt like that! Hope to meet you all soon!

      2 · March 20

    • Shannon

      Oh, I can see why you would question the waiting list then :) Well thank you for understanding and we look forward to meeting you soon!

    I'm in a pickle and decided that since there are a lot of dog owners here, I could get some ideas from them. Friend of mine needs to put their dog in a daycare for about a week, just looking for a reputable, affordable (I know it will be expensive, just saying), and within Austin facility...needs to be done before Tuesday. In order to not blow this up here, possible help can email me at [masked].

    I apologize for using this message board for something not completely hiking related, I just didn't know who else to ask.

    These hikes sound like fun, but I am wondering about the logistics of so many people, and dogs on one hike! Especially considering, I wouldn't know anyone there yet.

    March 13

    • Shannon

      We've been doing these for awhile, they're a ton of fun. You won't know anyone for the first one, but people are really sweet and friendly. You can make a lot of friends :-)

      1 · March 13

    • Levon B.
