What we're about

I want this group to be about doing some hiking, taking walks around town, and then afterward have a place to gather and get drinks. The theme will be to walk for about 1.5 hours and then have drinks afterward. I plan on having hikes around various places like the greenbelt and other random sites. This group is not for hardcore hikers, but for people who want to walk a bit and meet new people. I typically schedule about 6 to 7 events a month and sometimes more.

This group does cost me money to run. So donations are always welcome. Photos are now required to join the group, so please post a headshot of yourself and without sunshades. It is kind of hard to recognize who you are if you are wearing shades. Photos allow people to know who you are and make for a better atmosphere.

******ATTENDANCE POLICY****************************************

I will monitor attendance, and anybody with three or more no shows will be removed. Too many times when I have a waiting list people who are on the going list no show, and this prevents people on the waiting list from going. So please change your RSVP if you are not going.

Also, another issue I have noticed is that people change their RSVP last minute to no. Anybody who is moved up to the waiting list with this little notice will not be able to attend since it takes time to drive to an event. So for events that have a waiting list, I will mention a specific time you need to change your RSVP to a No. Typically this will be within an hour from the start time of the event. Anybody who does not change their RSVP within the time I mention will be considered a no show.

Overall I just want people who are more reliable and more serious about participating in the group. I put a lot of time into this and unfortunately just asking people nicely to not no show doesn't work.

Hike Trailhead Park

Trailhead Park

I have limited the attendance to 25 people. Please only come if you are going to go. As always, we reserve the right to remove people with three or more no-shows. If you do not change your RSVP to no at least two hours before the event, you will be considered a no-show.

Let's go hike Trailhead Park. This trail is a total of 3.5 miles to the end and back. Dogs are welcome on the trail as long as they are well behaved. We will hike to an old oak tree that is hundreds of years old, and the hike will take approximately 1.75 hours. Bring at least two liters of water and wear hiking boots if you have them. Shoes are okay, but please don't come if you are going to wear sandals or flip flops.

This trail is not overly difficult as long as you are in reasonable shape. Most of it is flat, but we will go uphill for about 100 yards.

Austin, TX 78717

Finally, we recommend that you review information on the trail and that you come prepared for the hike (e.g., bring at least two liters of water, wear appropriate footwear such as hiking boots, and a brimmed hat.) All attendees are solely responsible for their own health and safety.

By RSVPing for this event, you are agreeing that you are taking sole responsibility for your own health and safety and, if any, your guests' health and safety. If you or your guests are not willing or are unable to take responsibility for your own health and safety, do not RSVP for this event.
