Nice walk
Brushy Creek Regional Trail - 8/23/2008  [View Log Page]
Rating: Difficulty: Solitude:
Distance: 5.25 Miles Duration: 1 hour, 30 minutes

Walked this trail this morning from 10:15-11:45.  My dog and I walked from Creekside trail head to the middle of the dam.  It was a pleasant walk with nice shade and nice people.  They provide poop bags but not so many garbage cans.  There are a lot of emergency call boxes if something should happen.  There were quite a few bikers but were good about calling out their position.  Bring your own water and wear sunscreen.  There is shade but for long streaches you'll be exposed to direct sun.  Parts of the trail run parralles to CR 174 so you'll not feel very secluded but the scenery will compensate for the traffic noise.  I look forward to walking my dog there again soon!

 

Easy city hike
Old Settlers Park - 7/25/2008  [View Log Page]
Rating: Difficulty: Solitude:
Distance: 2.50 Miles Duration: 45 minutes

Easy hike that winds you through sports fields, trees and near the RR Express stadium.  The walk was nice enough.  We did hear a lot of buzzing from the RC airplanes on one portion of the walk.  We just pretended they were Cicadas.  If your walking your dog bring your own poop bag we did not see any provided but the do provide a lot of garbage cans. 

Bueautiful and HOT

I did this hike a long time ago.  We hiked up the face in the mid morning.  It was beautiful but there were quite a few other hikers.  Now that we live in Austin I'm looking forward to taking my husband and doing the full hike!
