Night Hike Terry Hershey Park (6 miles)

We've been loving the night hikes, so I'll keep them coming! We'll stay on the dirt trails to keep it interesting. :-)

Just south of the bayou on the east side of Dairy Ashford, you will see a Shipley's Donuts. Nearby, there is a very tall building with an empty parking lot that backs against the bayou. That is where we will meet. It is on the map.

We will start out at the Dairy Ashford parking lot near the center of the trail. From there we will stay on the dirt trails headed west and then east...finishing up back at Dairy Ashford. For those of you who attended the Memorial Park Night Hike, this will be more challenging with some narrower paths and more downed trees and obstacles. I will be relying on those of you familiar with this trail to help out those who are not with some of these obstacles. (downed trees to climb over, etc.)

Supply List:
headlamp, warm layers, gloves & hat, snack, water, whistle, sense of adventure. I recommend hiking boots for this hike.
If you are afraid of the dark you are welcome to bring a rosary and a woobie. :-)

We'll plan to eat something afterward at Schlotzsky's: 12485 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77077

Please leave home a little early to be at the trailhead on time.

    Hi is thsi a hike where my 2 dogs would be welcome. If so how late do you go?

    February 7, 2013

  • Jennifer B.

    2 things: My husband told me last night that he will need our car all day today, so I have 2 issues...
    1. Is anyone going to the hike from the Sugar Land area who can take me?
    2. After the hike tonight, I am getting on a late bus to New Orleans for the trip this weekend. From the hike, does anyone go toward the downtown area who could drop me off in the Pierce St./Travis St. area (Hwy 59 & Hwy 45).
    If I can't swing this, then I will not be able to go tonight, and I will assign someone else as the hike leader.
    Thanks!

    Is this a dog-friendly hike? Some trails in Terry Hershey are, but I wanted to check first. Thanks!

    February 4, 2013

    • Jennifer B.

      This is a dog friendly hike, but your dog MUST stay on a leash. Most of us love dogs, but there are a few who have a legitimate fear of dogs. As long as they are on a leash we would love to have them.
