Copy of Thursday Night Hike in River Place

Come Join us for a sweaty hike to start off the weekend!

What: This hike is excellent if you might be training for another event, are working on your cardiovascular shape or just enjoy a slight tinge of burn in your legs! This is Austin's highest elevation hike! Starting from the pond in Woodland Park, walk along the boardwalk—away from the street—to access the trail. There are a lot of log steps with smooth, packed dirt throughout the hike (over 900 steps in fact!), and you will quickly learn that the trail is a natural stair climber workout. This is a 3-mile out-and-back trail, making for a somewhat strenuous 6-mile route when hiked in its entirety.

When: 6:30-8:30pm July 14th 

Where: River Place Nature Trail ( woodland Pond starting place) 

What to bring: water, sunscreen- We will have my camera to take pics for you! 

Cost:
