Day Hike IconOct 30 (Sat) Suburban Walk: Bonnie Wenk-Towne Lake Trail, Mckinney

Join me for an approximately 5-mile walk on a scenic paved trail and get your miles in before lunch. Enjoy some time talking to new friends and enjoy a cool morning walk. The pace is relaxed but you must be able to walk 5 miles comfortably.  The walk is in and out of mixed hardwoods so we will have a chance to practice tree identification. The walk around Towne Lake is scenic with lots of waterfowl, a fountain, and other walkers. Bathrooms are at both the beginning and the turnaround at Towne Lake Park. Bring a liter of water, dress for the weather (layers), and wear comfortable walking shoes. Walk starts at 8:00 am and we will be back to the cars no later than 11:30 am. Call  or email Jim Binnings for directions to the meeting point. Read the participation agreement in advance at this link: http://www.dallassierraclub.org/page.htm?agreement.  Trip rated: Moderate.

Class IconJan 22-23 (Sat-Sun) Outings Leader Training

(replace this text with a short description of the image)SAVE THIS WEEKEND for Outings Leader Training for new leaders! Whether your interest is day hikes or multi-day backpacking, the Dallas Sierra Club actively seeks new leaders. We've reserved the heated meeting space and dining hall at Eisenhower State Park, near Denison, for new leader training. Sleep Saturday night in your tent or inside the building on your air mattress or cot. Come for tales from current leaders and role-playing situations you might experience as a leader. The only fee for the weekend is a $10 park admission. This is an event offered only once every year or two. Don't miss it! Call or email for inquiries.  Coordinator: Mark Stein Send Email 214-526-3733

Backpack IconFeb 9-13 (Wed-Sun) Big Bend National Park

We missed our annual outing to hike in the Big Bend due to COVID in 2021, but we're going there in 2022! This year's trip will offer a choice of three hiking/backpacking itineraries for a maximum of 25 participants. We've reserved campsites in the Chisos Basin, the Chisos Mountains, and Rio Grande Village. See how the Chisos ecosystem is recovering from  a spring 2021 fire in the Chisos Mountains or view Boquillas Canyon from the remote Marufo Vega Trail. Watch for a link to trip details and registration information on this page in late October.  Coordinator: Mark Stein Send Email 214-789-4596
