Start the year off strong with a peaceful hike through the Lake Houston Wilderness Park, 25840 FM 1485, New Caney! 

This event encourages individuals to join with an open mind to enjoy some light exercise & fresh air - I can’t think of a better way to begin 2023!

Event information from the event page:

About the Hike:

It’s actual dirt trails with some sandy spots and some hills. Well maintained. We’ll hike about 6 miles.

Level of Difficulty:

All levels but you should be able to hike about 25-30 min miles. We’ll go the pace of the group or split into 2 groups if needed. We’ll stop to make sure everyone is comfortable with the pace. We leave no one behind so you don’t have to worry about getting lost on the trail.

Dog Friendly for Friendly Dogs

You must have water and poop bags for your dog. All dogs must stay on a short leash. Please do not let your dog approach other people and especially do not approach other dogs.

No kids

Members may bring their kids to member events, but we’re primarily an adult outdoor social club.

What to bring:

- Sturdy shoes

- Layers - you’ll warm up as you hike

- Water for you and your dog if you bring one

- A snack or lunch - after the hike, we’ll find a spot to eat

- A chair to sit in after the hike

- Comfortable shoes to change into after the hike
