Hike: Turkey Creek Trail
Weather: cool, overcast, low 60s
Hikers: Ian, Court, Biff
Length: 3.03 miles
The weather in Texas has been insane lately with another round of flooding in early November. El Nino is ramping back up and it has made it difficult to get out and hike, but we found a nice window this weekend and decided to get Biff out to Turkey Creek. We have done this hike a few times in the past. It’s not too long, but is great for dogs.
We got to the trail a bit later than normal, around 9:30am, but there were only a few cars in the lot. Usually this lot is packed by 8am. The water was flowing pretty good still and there was a lot of flood debris that still needs to be cleared out. The trail could definitely use some maintenance this winter, as part of the trail is completely blocked by debris, making it necessary to do some creative re-routing.
A good solid hike overall. One of our go-to hikes with Biff, as he can do most of it without having to be carried. Hopefully the weather cooperates the rest of this winter and into spring so we can get out a little more often.
