Hike - May 21, 2016

Change of plans: due to the 11:00 traffic at last week's South of the James market, and the 10k trail run during this weekend's Riverrock festival, we will hike on the North Bank instead.

We will be hiking on Saturday, May 21, 2016. We will meet at the Texas Beach parking lot and hike on the North Bank Trail out to Brown's Island, where we can check out some Riverrock events like kayak races, bike tricks, bouldering, or air dogs (dock jumping). Then we'll double back to Texas Beach. We can decide as a group whether to get lunch from food trucks at Riverrock or go to a restaurant after the hike. The hike will be about 4 miles, so about 2 hours of walking plus time at Riverrock.

Saturday, May 21
11:00 a.m. hike

Directions: take Meadow Street south until it ends. Turn left on Kansas Avenue, then right on Texas Avenue. Texas Avenue dead-ends into a small parking lot. This is where we will meet. For GPS directions, you can use the nearby address 1912 Texas Avenue, Richmond, VA 23220. The only facility at the trailhead is a portapotty.
