Cedar Hill State Park Day Hike/Bike (11/17/2007)

Posted by youngsierrans on November 9, 2007

Join us for a day hike/mountain bike event at Cedar Hill State Park on Saturday, November 17th. CHSP is an 1826 acre urban, nature preserve located on the 7500 acre Joe Pool Reservoir.  The CHSP has over 15 miles of bike trails designed by the Dallas Off-Road Biking Assoc (DORBA). These trails are both hiker and biker friendly and wind through native tall grass prairie remnants (some listed as endangered) and upland forests. There are a variety of trail lengths to hike/bike; we’ll determine which to follow at the park.  Let’s also plan to have an optional, picnic lunch after our hike/bike (~1:00 PM?) back at the trailhead.

Please RSVP by November 15th to the Evite or Young Sierrans’ email address. The park is about a 30-40 minute drive from downtown, so if you are interested in ride-sharing please see the link below. All are welcome; you need not be a Sierra Club member to attend.
