Backpack IconMay 19-21 (Sun-Tue) Exploratory backpack trip in White Mountains Wilderness, New Mexico

For many years our Memorial Day bus trip alternated between White Mountains Wilderness, near Ruidoso, and Bandelier National Monument, near(replace this text with a short description of the image) Los Alamos.  Then wildfire devastated both, and it’s been years since we’ve been back.  But fire is a natural part of forest ecosystems and they do recover. 

It’s time to go back and see what the new White Mountains are like!  We’ll meet Sunday morning, check out trailheads, and spend two nights in the back country to see how trails have recovered.  Wednesday we'll check out some other BLM and historic sites in the area.  It’s a scouting trip so expect plans to be fluid!  Much of our backpack trip will be on the Crest Trail, which features some of the best views to be found anywhere. Trip rated: Moderately Strenuous. Leader: Mark Stein Send Email 214-526-3733

Day Hike IconJun 1 (Sat) Urban Walk, Breckenridge Park, Richardson Tx.

We will walk the main paved path through the park. We will walk past two small lakes and a nicely wooded area. The park and paved path are well maintained. We will walk at a pace of around 2.5 mph for approximately 5 miles. Learn about the "trashy" origin of the park and also have a chance to ID local plants as we walk. Well mannered dogs on a leash are welcome. This is a great way to get the weekend started and a chance to meet other Sierra Club members. The hike is rated moderate because of the potential for summer time temperatures and the walk is in full sun most of the way. Comfortable shoes and water are recommended. Hat and sunscreen are highly recommended. Outing is 8:00 am to 11:00 am. Contact Jim for details. Limit 10 people. Trip rated: Moderate. Leader: Jim Binnings Send Email 205-746-3266

Backpack IconJul 21-26 (Sun-Fri) Backpack in Colorado

(replace this text with a short description of the image)This year's July destination for mountain backpacking is the Uncompahgre Wilderness, southwest of Gunnison.

One party will hike 18 miles in four days, including a 12,600' saddle separating the two drainage basins. Two other parites will hike the same trails plus a day hike to 14,301' Uncompahgre Peak, 29 miles in five days. This outing is strenuous due to the high altitude.
