1001 South Dairy Ashford Drive, Houston, TX
We have to get as many hikes in as possible before Zion and Havasupai! I'm going through night hike withdrawals, so here we go!
These hikes are great for first timers and kids. They are not as long, hot, or challenging as some of the other hikes we do. They are also a little slower pace. They are a good way to test your fitness level without killing yourself. Kids love the creepy night-time factor. Do not be nervous if you are first timer with this group...you can walk up to anyone and they will start a conversation with you. We are all very outgoing and friendly.
We will start out at the Dairy Ashford parking lot near the center of the trail. From there we will stay on the dirt trails headed east and back...finishing up back at Dairy Ashford. We will be using the narrow dirt trails. Once we get to the turnaround point, you can choose to cross the bayou and take the sidewalks back to the parking lot. Most of us like to stay on the dirt though. :-)
headlamp, snack, water, sense of adventure. I recommend hiking boots for this hike in case it is slick, but tennis shoes will get you by.
If you are afraid of the dark you are welcome to bring a rosary and a woobie. :-)
Dogs are welcome, but they must be kept on a leash at all times and must be friendly. I am a dog fanatic, but there are NO exceptions to this rule. We have members that are nervous around dogs. If you take your dog off the leash, you will be asked to leave the event. Thank you for being sensitive to others' feelings on this.
We'll plan to eat something afterward at Jason's Deli: 14604 Memorial Dr. 77079
Please leave home a little early to be at the trailhead on time, and please LOOK AT THE MAP before you leave so you know where you are going. :-)
