Yucca Flats @ Palmer Park--recurring evening hike

A group of us were talking one night, and decided we should have some recurring evening hikes at some local parks.  This is the first of those. 

We'll start out from Yucca Flats and see where the trail takes us. There are lots of trails in the area, so we should have plenty to explore.  Dogs are permitted off leash as well.  (yeah!)

It's also staying light later we can walk as long as the light or our feet or the dogs hold out.

Distance: generally 2-3 miles

Difficulty:  easy-moderate.  Mostly easy.

So, come join us and see what adventures present themselves weekly. 


Directions (this is one of many ways to enter the park):

From Maizeland Ave., enter the main gate to Palmer park. Pass the main parking lot and baseball fields on the right. Continue up Paseo Rd until you come to the Lazyland group picnic area/Yucca Flats on the right hand side. Turn right on the gravel road then bear left at the Y (the right turn will take you to the group picnic area). Parking area is at the end of the road and off-leash trails lead out from there.


* If this is your first hike/event with our group for 2013, please bring the $5 dues with you. It will be collected before the event starts.*

    Will have to skip again due to weather. We keep getting bouts of rain and thunder and don't want to get caught in it. REALLY want to get back to these Monday hikes, hopefully next week.

    We've had a down pour near Austin Bluffs and Academy this afternoon and it's still rumbling at four so I think the girls and I will miss it this week. I hate to miss the walks but there will be lots of mud and slipping that could happen.

    I'm watching the rain... Currently down pouring here at work ( Northgate area). Has been raining on/off all day. I may need to cancel if I see rain in/around Palmer park. I'll do my best to cancel within an hour of the event.
