Big Hill Pond State Park over-nighter

  • Mar 8, 2014 · 8:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Backpack at Big Hill Pond State Park. Easy terrain and short miles make this a good hike for beginners. Camp at a shelter on a lake. Half-mile boardwalk over a swamp. Fire tower to climb and see for miles. No bugs yet. Will decide exact trails once we get to the Visitors Center. It is about a 3 hour drive.

This is short notice, so we're going to keep the group small, but if it fills up, feel free to contact Cynthia or Raymond

There is a small fee for back-country camping, which varies based on number of people.  Approximately $3-$4 per person.

    Beautiful, beautiful weather, especially considering what it could have been for early March. And what a nice group of comrades for the hike and the long drive. We had fun! And my dramatic and complete face plant did not result in any blood or bruises. WHEW!!!

    Brought home a tick! Luckily I live with a paramedic so I didn't have to call 911. Thank goodness for Williamson county medics!!!!

    Nice weather. The park trails needed to be marked better, but, otherwise, a nice park.

    I wish I did not have plans already this weekend. This looks like it would be a good one for me to start. Hopefully another beginner one will be done soon.
