Hiking w/ H.A.T.s along Cypress Creek-Donald R. Collins Park & Eastern Trails

This event was initially set up by Houston Area Trails and More - a local hiking group.  I received permission to cross post this event for HAD members. Please note that this is an on-leash event.  Also, this is a large group of hikers and HATs gets lots of RSVPs - your dog should be well behaved and comfortable around a large group of people.

The Hike: We will walk some trails at Meyer Park then we explore the trails to the east of Donald Collins Parks. On the route trail map, CLICK HERE, we will first do the blue arrow-hash tracks, followed by the red, and finally the yellow.

*Note For HAD Members: I haven't been on these trails before, so I am not sure if there are water stations.  The hiking group is recommending that everyone carry water (they prefer camel back water packs).  Don't forget to bring water for your dog too!  And if you don't want to go on the whole 9-10 mile hike, the trails overlap quite a bit, so cutting out early shouldn't be a problem.

Gathering Place:  We'll be parking and gathering at the innermost parking lot inside of Donald R. Collins Park.  The group should be visible at the lot or somewhere in the shade.

Optional After Hike Event : Gringos (This likely won't work for HAD since we will have our dogs with us - I will try to find a dog friendly place in case HAD folks want an option)

    FYI, the "Houston/Austin Hiking & Outdoors" meetup group is having a dog-friendly night hike on Thursday. I went to the one last month and it was a lot of fun.

    Did anyone end up attending this event? If so, how was it? I was reluctant to take Max on a 10 mile hike. I've never walked him more than a few miles at a time.

      Hi David - Not sure how many of our folks were there, but I did hear back from one HAD member who went and indicated that she and her pup were tired but both really enjoyed it.

    Hugo, the organizer of the trail group said he would be standing near the entrance directing folks, wearing shorts, baseball cap and daypack.
