Brazos Bend State Park Hike
Sunday, March 19, 2023 9:00 AM
Meet at 40 Acre Lake Parking Lot

Join the Texas Gulf Coast Chapter in Brazos Bend State Park for a training hike.

Starting at 40 Acre Lake, we will piece together an 8.2 mile loop that includes Elm Lake, Horseshoe Lake Loop and Big Creek Loop. This is a 3.5 hour route, partly shaded, flat terrain, over trails of crushed gravel and hard-dirt. There are restrooms at the start and along the way where you can fill your water bottle.

Carry water, suntan lotion, bug spray and hat. Please, no dogs on Chapter hikes.

Wear the socks, shoes, poles, and pack that you plan to carry en camino and see how they work for you.

Pack a snack or lunch for a post-hike picnic near the parking lot.

Brazos Bend State Park is about an hour south of downtown Houston. Click here for directions and a map from the Park website. Enter the Park and show your reserved day pass at Headquarters. Drive a short ways to the parking area at 40 Acre Lake.
