H.A.T.s _02_2013 Lake Somerville State Park - Birch Creek Unit ~14 miles

  • Feb 16, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This hike is long but since it's an out-and-back people can turn around to make it shorter. I'll notify people at the ~8 and ~10 mile turn around points but I am doing the whole 14 miles.

There is camping after this hike and an additional hike the next day. Check the subsequent postings for details if interested.

The Hike: We'll be doing a mostly out-and-back of the Trailway Trail from the Birch Creek Unit to Yegua Creek. For the route map: CLICK HERE

Parking & Meeting Point: Park in the parking lot just to the right after you enter the park. See the map below for exact location. If you do not see us then call, text, or drive around till you spot my light blue Jeep. Click next to the teardrop map symbol above for google directions.

Optional After Hike Event : Some of us will be camping and so we will start-up the grill and start relaxing. If not camping, you can still join. Just bring your own cooler of drinks and grill or food stuff. May have beer and extra hotdogs for the absent minded ;-)

    Chuck:
    Am definately going! Looking forward to this event. Will we be staying for the cookout? Is it possible to meet closer to Katy? I live close to Westgreen and I-10. There is a CVS pharmacy just south of Westgreen off I-10, and I could leave my car there. Let me know. Can't wait!

      I assume you are talking about the CVS at 110 Westgreen Boulevard. Katy, Texas 77450. I will meet you there tomorrow around 7:30 AM.

    Anyone interested in breakfast at this barbeque place in Lexington, TX? They are only open Saturday mornings and people drive hundreds of miles to get their meat. http://www.yelp.com/biz/snows-bbq-lexington

    Hi, Chuck. I'm going to have to bow out due to a bruised toenail. Doesn't look like I'll be wearing shoes for awhile. Thanks anyway for the offer of a ride. I was looking forward to the hike. Y'all enjoy!

    I'd love to come for either the Sat. or Sun. hike only, but need a ride. Who's driving the carpool Sat.? Chuck or Jodi? Got room for me if I can't find a ride on Sun.? If so, are you staying for the cookout or heading home after the hike?

      Chuck, the Target parking lot at Memorial City is a good place to leave a car, if it's convenient for everyone. Thanks for the ride! I'm OK with either staying for the cookout, or heading for home and the shower after the hike...

    Any chance I could car pool with someone for Saturday 10am hike? I live in Richmond, off Grand parkway. I only want to the walking part on Saturday and come back. I could drive too if someone wants to car pool with me.
