Fall Weekend Trip #1

October 20, 2023 - October 22, 2023

Brazos Bend State Park or Turkey Creek Backpacking

Brazos Bend State Park: We will be doing some hiking, biking, and exploring of the state park. Brazos Bend is known for its alligator population and unique features to this part of Texas, so come ready to see some incredible wildlife while spending the day outside exploring. Both Friday and Saturday nights will be spent camping at Brazos Bend.

Turkey Creek Backpacking:  You can’t beat backpacking in the fall in Texas! Please join us for a great weekend exploring a section of the Big Thicket National Preserve! On Saturday, the group will head out to the Turkey Creek Trail. Three groups of hikers will hike 12 miles in total between Saturday and Sunday morning. Saturday evening will be spent at a campsite along the trail. Upon finishing the hike on Sunday morning, the group will head back to Houston at approximately 12:00pm.


Please note:  The trip signup is your opportunity to make your preferences and availability for our weekend trips known.  We will make our best effort to place you on the trip(s) that you have requested.  However, due to limits on capacity, as well as the need to maintain a reasonable adult:student ratio, there may be trips where we do not have space for every leader who would like to attend. We will follow up by email 1-2 weeks prior to our weekend trips with details and all the information you will need for attending.  Thank you!
