Saturday Hike at McKinney Roughs Nature Park

  • Jan 25, 2014 · 7:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi all, join us for a medium paced 8 mile hike on the Colorado River at the LCRA’s McKinney Roughs Nature Park. The trails wind along ridges and descends down to the river and back up to the start point.

WARNING, this hike is not for beginners. If you have never hiked 8 miles before, it is highly recommended that you try some of our shorter hikes to gauge your hiking ability.

Be sure you are aware of your physical limitations.

This is a LCRA park and a $4.00 entrance fee per person is required.

This hike will require a medium amount of physical exertion. There are significant elevation changes and the terrain is rocky in some areas.

You will need to have good hiking boots/shoes, food for your lunch and more water than you think you will require.

We'll meet in San Antonio at the Park and Ride underpass of I-10 and 1604 at 7:00 and leaving at exactly 7:15. Look for the red Ford F-150.

If you carpool, you will be required to provide gas money to your driver.

Hike on,

Paul

      Paul, I fell on the ice this morning. My knee is bothering me and look a little swollen. I don't think I will be able to make it tomorrow.

      January 24, 2014

    • Paul

      So sorry Adrienne. Take care of that knee and we will see you soon.

    Anyone interested in carpooling close to the intersection of 281 and 1604?

      No sorry that is a farther drive for me than it is to I10/1604.

    Brand new here, don't know my way around. Would anyone be willing to exchange numbers in in case I get turned around tomorrow morning? (205)[masked]

    • bonson

      on mapquest or google maps find the carpool under Loop 1604 at Interstate 10

      January 24, 2014

    • bonson

    Just a couple tidbits of useless information....the Austin area has received a pretty good dusting of snow. Might make for some neat photo ops. Also, the Texas 100K Canoe race will be starting at 5am tomorrow morning from Town Lake at the IH35 bridge and heading to Bastrop. Might see some interesting racing canoes on the river.

    I read the regulations to see if dogs are allowed in the park. It says pets are to be kept under control and leashed, so I guess that is a yes?! Will we be on trails or on areas where dogs are not allowed?

    1 · January 19, 2014

    • Paul

      Least I forget, we have encountered horse riders on the trail. Be sure your furry friend is ok with this.

    Hi all. I am new to the group and this will be my first outing. Do we coordinate the carpooling at the meeting point or do I need to request to ride with someone here?

    November 16, 2013

    • Paul

      Hi Dina, just meet us at the carpool location and drivers and riders can be determined from there.
