Join Hiking with Geeks, Dallas for a beautiful 4.5 mile hike; geek or no geek, we all have a great time getting to know each other along the way!
Lakeside entrance near Boardwalk (we haven’t been to this loop on Northshore yet but it’s one of the prettiest with the most elevation changes throughout): From FM 2499, turn west on Lakeside Pkwy. Take the roundabout to Lakeside Pkwy and loop around the continue on Lakeside Pkwy towards the high-rise building under construction at
Edgemere Road, park as you approach (there is no parking on Edgemere Road itself as it is resident only). When you park, you will see on Edgemere Road a trailhead entrance with large boardwalk signs, meet here.
This hike should take approximately 2 hours as we typically take breaks and match one another’s speed as we go.
The event start time is the gathering time. Please meet at the trailhead at 6:00pm. We’ll leave promptly 10 minutes after the scheduled start time (to give some cushion for late arrivers while still respecting everyone’s time). We’ll hike the trail starting no later than 6:40, depending on if we are waiting on anyone dealing with parking farther away or not, then get to know each other along the way as we hike.
Please keep in mind (on our HWG scale) that the trails at this location are rated as moderate for the DFW area because this is a more technical part of Northshore Trail with large rocks and boulders to climb up during parts (nothing we can’t handle!) but please remember to wear non-skid shoes as it might be damp**Also, make sure to bring enough water to drink during the hike.
