40s+ Hike Series
What: We Trying Some Place New! Its in Mckinney, its a little longer drive for some of you, but its a really nice trail system!! This is off 380 outside of Mckinny. Mike has found a nice trail for us. Just FYI, if you have a good trail you know about and would like to lead one, let me know.
Direction to park:
North on 75 to 380 west.
380 west to Lake Forest dr.
North on Lake Forest dr. For 2 miles.
Right on Rd 162 to stop sign.
Right at stop sign for .8 miles,
Left for .4 miles,
Right to park entrance,
Left @ <~>,
Parking is on the right.
How Far: maybe 2 hours or less, we not done this as a group so the time frame apprx
How Fast: normal pace
Hike level: both advance/ beginner level. Advance hikers tend to walk faster so they will be more towards the front, and slower beginner hikers tend to follow in the rear. But at the end everyone completes the miles distance. You go at a pace you can handle. But this is NOT a Mall Walk. It could be warm outside, you will break a sweat
Can I bring someone?: Yes, and dogs on leash.
Any Requirements: Just one, EVERYONE carries WATER. Seasoned marathon runner or new hiker, no exceptions! (We always provide extra water bottles if you forget)
Suggested to bring:
- Hat ( cover from sunny areas & protects your head in the woods)
-Sun Shades ( for sun and it also protects your eyes floating debris and makes you look cool)
-hiking belt/lite pack (optional, but if you hike or plan to hike often, its convenient for carrying water and your stuff, cell phone, snack, )
-SHOES (don’t need hiking boots for these hikes, a regular pair of workout walk/ jogging gym shoes are fine. Some tread souls would be good.DON’T bring your petty new shoes, we sometimes do have a few muddy spots, and they will get dirty!

Note From Hike Leader AO 40’s+, We try to make this a fun hike. There are many hard core outdoors meetup groups of which I attend some but our events are to provide new and continued camaraderie for our Nite Owl family of friends and to get in some exercise/workout with friends we already know. We do hike as a group, and I never leave anybody behind, I account for everyone that is on my hikes. This is a fun, friendly, safe 40s+ event. And if we get in hiking shape, I hope to later in season setup a real hike out of town....
