McKinney Falls State Park Hikes – 02/27/16

014

The Colorado River Walkers out of Austin, TX are hosting this event.  Some of the trails in the park are still closed from last spring’s flooding.  Most of the walk will be on trails (some of which is shared with bikes so you have to stay to the right and not wander all over the pathway).

Start/Finish point and registration will be inside the State Park.  There is a $6.00 per person entry fee (and they need the money for repairs).

START TIME: 9:00-Noon.  Must be finished by 3:00 PM.

This is a Volksmarching event and you will need to register to get a start card. We charge a $3.00 fee to help defray the cost of hosting the event.  There will be a 5K and 10K option.

You do not have to be a club member to participate.  This is not a speed event. You are encouraged to bring along your children and walk/talk and spend some time together enjoying the great outdoors.

When you finish (anytime before 3:00 PM) you turn in your start card. If you are an official Volkssporter you will have an Event and/or Distance Record Book. When you turn in your start card you will receive a stamp in your record books.

If you do not as yet have an AVA record book, they will be for sale at the start/finish. Just ask for a new walker’s packet. The packet is $5.00 but it contains three coupons for free registration ($9.00 value) as well as both an Event and a Distance book.

Directions to Walk Location from I-35 in Austin: 

Take exit #228 (William Cannon). Right on William Cannon for about 3.5 miles till it dead ends at McKinney Falls Pkwy. Left on McKinney Falls Pkwy for about 1.25 miles to the entrance of the park on your left.

Hope to see you there.
