Did you see the sunset picture on the Meetup site Trailwalkers home page? Well, you too can experience the calm soothing effect of a Texas Hill Country Sunset Hike!
Come join us at 6:30 PM at the Lower Purgatory Trailhead to start off your weekend with a medium to medium-fast paced hike around the dames, and through the woods of Lower Purgatory natural area. We will be returning back to the parking lot around 8:15, just before dark. But, you may want to bring a small light with you just in case. Walk off your stress from the week, start your weekend off right, and bring some water!
From the SMGA website: The access point to lower Purgatory from the intersection of Wonder World Drive and Hunter Road on the south side includes parking, a kiosk and the trailhead for Dante's Trail, which leads through the length of Purgatory Creek Natural Area. The first 1-mile section is crushed stone and dirt hike and bike trail. Where the trail's bike ramps merge onto the roadway at the northern end of Wonder World Drive, the trail splits both south (connecting to Prospect Park along Virgil's Way) and north (connecting to the more challenging upper Purgatory trails).
