The Terry Hershey Park Hike & Bike Trail provides more than 10 miles of trail from Barker Dam (near State Highway 6) to Texas Beltway 8 and the Sam Houston Tollway. The paved walkways are located in the cleared stretch of the park, free of trees, and are about 10 feet in width. The dirt trails, however, cut through the densely grown forest growing along the bayou, and are not easily accessible.

This event is an hour and a half quick-paced hike through some of the lesser-known (and more adventuresome) trails that the park has to offer.  Participants must wear tennis shoes or hiking boots as it’s easy to bang a toe on a tree root.  Hikers must also bring water as there are no water fountains along the trails.

There will be brunch and coffee after the hike.
