McKinney Roughs is a beautiful park and Thanksgiving will be a great day to explore it! This will be a 3 hour hike looping down by the Colorado River and back. It has lots of shade, some elevation and some nice river views. Join us for a nice long hike (6-8 miles).
We’re going to enter McKinney Roughs at the Equestrian Parking Area. GPS [masked], [masked]) Entrance fee is $4/person. (It’s the honor system and no change is available.)
Travel 20 miles east on 71 from I-35, turn left on Pope Bend Rd. If you pass the Hyatt Lost Pines on the left - you have gone too far. The Pope Bend trailhead is located 1.5-miles down Pope Bend Road on the right side.
For those who want to carpool from the north let’s meet in the Spec’s Parking lot. (5775 Airport Blvd) We’ll gather there at 8:00 or meet at the park at 9 AM.
