*************************Original Invite**********************************************************

Everyone is invited to go hiking with me this week-end at Cross Timbers Trail. I will arrive at the
trail head at Juniper Point at 11:00 am Saturday, hike in 7 miles to Eagles nest, spend the night and return
Sunday morning. I expect the hiking will take about 3 hours. I would rate this hike as intermediate.
Directions: from Dallas take highway 75 North, go west on Highway 82 from Sherman to F.M.377,go North on
377 to Juniper Point. From Ft.Worth go north on 35 to Gainesville take 82 East, go North on 377 at Whitesboro
to Juniper Point. AT Juniper Point: This is the last left turn before crossing over the lake. Turn into the campground,
follow the road all the way to the back. Parking at the trail head is permitted. If you need more info I can be reached at 817.zzz.zzz Quiet Dave

goes to the Cross Timbers Trail for a Backpacking weekend.
RATING: Beginning Backpacking.
Alternate activity: You can take a kayak to the camping site.
The Cross Timbers Trail is relatively close to Dallas/Ft. Worth! It is located along the southern shoreline of Lake Texoma, just north of the the town of Whitesboro on Texas Highway 377.
Cross Timbers Hiking Trail begins at the Juniper Point West Campground and traverses the edge of the lake for about 12 miles one way. We will begin our hike at the Juniper Point West F4(Trail Head and hike in approx. 3 to 4 miles where we will setup camp. The Cross Timbers trail is a great beginners trip as it is not terribly long or overly strenuous for the first time backpacker. Lake Texoma is a large reservoir on the Texas-Oklahoma border just north of Dallas. The Cross Timbers Trail is the only real hiking in the area.

The club now owns 6 external frame backpacks, Please reserve one if you do not own a backpack and wish to use a club backpack.
Backpacking is a group activity. We share the group loads and pack accordingly. If you are planning on attending this trip please contact Michael about approved gear and recommended items . You should not plan to carry more than 20% of your body weight. 15% or less is recommended.
