Dallas Sierra Club Meeting IconDec 18 (Wed) No December Outings Committee meeting

The next Outings Committee meeting will be on January 15. Everyone interested in planning winter, spring and summer outings is warmly invited to come and participate in January!  Contact: Mark Stein Send Email 214-526-3733

Day Hike IconJan 11 (Sat) Eisenhower State Park, Denison Texas

Put on your coat, gloves, and wool cap and join me for a 6-8 mile (depending on the trail condition) winter hike. We will start at the Armadillo Hill Trailhead, pick up the Ike Hike and Bike Trail, and head northwest. We will walk through a mix of hardwoods and along the shores of Lake Texoma. We'll stop at a great overlook called Lovers' Leap and then break for lunch at the picnic area (bathrooms nearby). Then we'll double back the way we came. Bring 2 liters of water and lunch. Dress for the weather (layers). Wear good hiking shoes as the trail is rocky and uneven. $5 per person. Limit 10 people. Trip rated: Moderate. Leader: jim Binnings Send Email 205-746-3266
