Our club, at my request, hosted a Volksmarch at PK. The event was Sat & Sun so we went up on Friday to mark the trail. Didn't help that we'd never walked it before so we didn't really know where we were going. We started out on what we thought was the right trail and it was only a short loop that brought us right back where we started. We got more water and stared out again.
The trail was up and down and we climbed quite high and had several scenic overlooks like this one.
Our first checkpoint will be set up at this road crossing by this pretty church.
Leaving the church we once again climbed and reached another scenic overlook.
It was a nice hike but it was very HOT and humid without much breeze.
I liked this narrow stair section.
Todays walk was at the Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area (LLELA) also know as the Lewisville Wildlife Managment Area. This area is below the Lewisville Lake dam. It was a one day event sponsored by the Dallas Trekkers Club. This was a nice walking event laid out in two loops. The first loop was a short walk through the woods to the Minor-Porter Log Cabin.
Madisonville was a one day event sponsored by the Brazos Valley Trailblazers out of College Station, TX. Madisonville is the county seat of Madison county.
This was a nice walking event in the city that claims to be the “Mushroom Capitol of Texas”. It is at the junction of I-45 and Texas State Highway 21. The walk started at a pavilion in the Lake Madison Park.
The event went on park roads along the east side of the lake and then followed city streets around town and to the city cemetery were we passed the grave of Job Collard who was a hero at San Jacinto and was the owner of the land grant on which Madisonville was built.
Returning to the lake we took a hiking trail over the dam and around the lake on the west side through some nice woods and back to the start at the pavilion.
We went down to do a walking tour of Navasota. It was a beautiful day to be out walking. We've walked there before but we found new things to see. There were lots of nice old houses and about half of the walk was on a nice hike/bike trail system.
