So I tried to pick a place that could be on the way back from Inks Lake, we haven't hiked Brushy Creek in quite awhile. Fairly open hike, gets hot in the summer but hopefully still good.
From RR 620 (which becomes the 45 access road, but you can avoid the toll), heading north towards Round Rock, turn left on Parmer Lane and head northwest. Just after crossing the bridge over Brushy Creek take an immediate right on Brushy Creek Road and look for the park entrance on the right, bear left after taking a right to find the right section of parking lot.
We will start at in the parking lot near the play scape and bathrooms, and take the trail west under the road to the athletic field, and loop back to where we started, that will be a fairly short hike, but from there those who are interested can go east along the east side of the lake to where the trail eventually meets back up with Brushy Creek Rd. This area is less rough and more residential, and we will double back when we have hiked enough.
What will we talk about:
- More Than 1 In 4 Car Crashes Involve Cellphone Use?
- Schneier thinks it is time to break up the NSA into foreign offensive and domestic protection agencies, so government agencies can split. The Railroad agency in texas handles the gas and oil - was that a hostile takeover, I've seen mergers by the legislature, what else
Bring water, good shoes, I think this will be a pretty easy hike.
As always, hikes are dog friendly, call if you are running late, otherwise we will start on time.
