Based on some common sense requests, I've changed the hike to be along a more shade route.
Let's start the Fourth off with a bang. A hike around Hermann Park then among the tall trees at Rice University. About 10 miles. The hike will be mostly on crushed granite, hard packed dirt and pavement. There will be a significant amount of shade but some time in the sun too. So please take the proper precautions of a hat and sunscreen. Bring at least 2 liters of water.

The route is not set yet but will look somehting like the link below.

Park either at the Zoo or the new lot on Herman Drive. We will meetup at 9:00 AM then leave promptly at 9:15 AM. If you're late, wait at the meeting spot and we'll pick you up in a short time while looping through the park.

Afterward we can go for lunch at Cafe Express at 5601 Main St. (That is in the basement of the Museum of Fine Arts, but admission is not required. Just go down the stairs in front of the new building.)
