A Walk in the Woods

Public – Join us for an hour and a half quick-paced hike through some of the lesser-known (and more adventuresome) trails.  

Come prepared for a hike in Houston’s woods on the west side of town.  These are actual dirt trails with twists and turns and even some hills! Wear tennis shoes or hiking boots, both work equally well. The trail is wooded and runs next to the Bayou, and you’ll think you’re on the AT.  Well, the Houston version of the AT! This is a great hike to stretch your legs and meet other people who enjoy getting outside.

Join us for an hour and a half quick-paced hike through some of the lesser-known (and more adventuresome) trails.

About the Hike:

We’ll hike about 3-4 miles. We’ll hike at the pace of the group, but you should be able to hike a 25-30-minute mile. We’re a no-drop group. That means we make sure everyone who starts the hike with us finishes the hike with us, and you won’t get lost on the trail. 😄

This is an out-and-back hike, so we’ll hike halfway, then turn around and go back.

What to bring:

  1. Sturdy shoes for the hike; comfortable shoes for after the hike
  2. Water
  3. Sun and bug protection
  4. Layers

Fees: Free

Where to Meet:

Meet in the parking lot at 1001 S. Dairy Ashford (toward the front of the lot). Please check it on the map:

Meet Time: 9:45 am for 10 am sharp start time.

Arrive in the parking lot at 9:45 so you have time to find a spot, gather your stuff, and be ready to start hiking AT 10 am. There are no bathrooms, so please take care of business before 9:45.

Dog allowed for responsible dog owners: Do not let your dog approach any other dogs or people without asking first. Please bring water and poop bags.

No kids, please: We are an adult outdoor social club. 🙂

Every event has an Event Leader, so you don’t have to worry about showing up by yourself. They greet you and introduce you to others.
