Just south of the bayou on the east side of Dairy Ashford, you will see a Shipley's Donuts. Nearby, there is a very tall building with an empty parking lot that backs against the bayou. That is where we will meet. It is on the map.Just south of the bayou on the east side of Dairy Ashford, you will see a Shipley's Donuts.

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. For those of you who attended the Memorial Park Night Hike, this will be more challenging with more ups and downs. Once we get to the turnaround point, you can choose to cross the bayou and take the sidewalks back to the parking lot. Must of us like to stay on the dirt though.
Supply List: headlamp, snack, water, sense of adventure. I recommend hiking boots for this hike.
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. :-)
