Hike that Hangover Off Hike at Government Canyon State Park

  • This location is shown only to members

Hi all, lets start the New Year off right with a hike at GC. Join us for a 8 to 10 mile medium paced hike. We will meet at 8:45 and start hiking at exactly 9:00 and hike several of the back country trails to be determined the day of the hike.

This hike will require a medium amount of physical exertion. There are some elevation changes and the terrain is rocky in some areas. Be sure you are aware of your physical limitations.

You will need to have good hiking boots/shoes and plenty of water.

Bring good hiking shoes, lots of water and something to munch on. Not! Cost is $6.00 per person, or free with an annual parks pass.

Hike on,

Paul

    Sorry guys! Was looking forward to coming out and meeting you all but Hubby is sick from food poisoning. Just got it confirmed. Avoid La Focaccia on Alamo Street downtown for a few days.

      Yeah he's been sleeping all day. I think last night through the New Year he got rid of whatever it was. TMI I know. But we will definitely make up for it!

    Happy New Year everyone. Thanks to all of you for a First Day Hike at GC. Can't think of a better way to start the New Year. Great people and great fun.

    Hike sucked. I walked my butt off for 10 miles and I'm still hungover.

    Hello there! I'd love to go for the hike, I was just wandering if the group allows dogs to join? I have a fit and well behaved lab I'd like to take with me. Please let me know! :)

    Not sure if ya'll care or not really but my presence is tentative. Husband isn't feeling well so might not be going anywhere. Left the New Years party about 1.5 hours before midnight.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
