What we're about

This group is for those who love outdoor activities. Hiking, camping, backpacking, mountaineering, mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, spelunking, walking, jogging, cycling, swimming, as well as other sports, are all activities that are possibilities for our calendar.

This group operates under a "members first" mentality and I hope that it grows into a great one. A Meetup Group is only as good as its members.

Together again! Erwin Park hike.

Erwin Park

Hey Everyone! We will meet at 8am at the gazebo by the second parking area. When you come into the park, park in second parking area to the right. It will be hot! I reccomend at least 50-76 ounces of water. There are several areas where you can get off the trail: 4 miles, 6 miles, 8 miles. Total length is just short of 10 miles. If you RSVP and you can't come, Since our numbers are limited...PLEASE ... change your RSVP. Look forward to seeing everyone!

Day Hike Cross Timbers Trail (Juniper West) and Picnic

Juniper Point Park West

We will start our hike at the West Juniper Point trail head. Total mileage of the hike is 5 miles. I uploaded a picture of the elevation in the photo section. Lots of up and down compared to most in hikes North Texas. If we have a large group it will take us about 2.5 hours. Bring lots of water. I would also recommend a hiking pole if you are not use to going up and down hills with loose rocks, sand etc. We will be protected most of the hike by a nice canopy of trees. After the hike we can enjoy a picnic and the view of the lake. Bring your own lunch. You can also fish off the dock if you have a fishing licenses , jump in the lake, kayak (BYOK). **There is poison ivy/oak on the side of the trail. Be on the look out if you are allergic to this plant. Leaves of 3 let it be.. ** Other items you may want to bring - fishing pole, Kayak, camping chair, swim suit or change of clothes/shoes, sunscreen. *Directions ....For GPS, use the address 32843 U.S. 377, Gordonville, TX 76245 to map to get to the parking area. From Whitesboro, TX travel about 14 miles north on Highway 377. The campground is on the left side of the highway just before you get to the Willis Bridge that crosses into Oklahoma. Once you are inside the park, drive until you hit a Y in the road. Turn left at the Y, drive until you can turn left into a parking/camping area. This is the trailhead. Very limited parking next to trailhead, but plenty in other parts of the park. Bring lots of water!! Only about half the people usually show up, so dont worry about the group size.
