We are gathering at the Hobby Plaza of the new Water Works Park on Sabine Street. Parking is available on Sabine Street or in the lot to the right of the plaza. If that is full go to the Fonde Rec Center orParking Lot H. If you are late, join us across the bayou on the stairs.Please check weather before attending to ensure you are dressed for winter weather. Bring a flash light as the sun sets when we leave.

Here are our first 3 stops for the late comers. Take the stairs down at Stop 1 and follow the path along the bayou.

We will be doing a training hike on the paved trails along Buffalo Bayou. Wear running shoes rather than hiking boots. The hike is appropriate for all members and fitness levels.

This hike can be a challenging and exhilarating workout where you do what meets your fitness goals. Safety is always first but it is cooler at night so be prepared to suck it up a little bit. :-)

This is a great exercise trail in the downtown area. There are several challenges along the trail, the Backward Hill, the Tower of Terror, The Fish Tank, Bubbles the Bayou Monster, the Theater of the Absurd, Ring the Bell, Waterfall Stairs, the Stairs of State, and finally the Tower of Power. We do brisk walking in between to keep our hearts pumping.

You may choose to run stairs as slow or fast as you want, do other exercisesor just stretch. This hike is meant to help you push a little and see yourstrengthimproveover time. The event will last about 1.5 hours.
