Murrell Park MADD Shelter, inside of Murrell Park (where we usually hike at northshore but farther into the park where it is a better trail): From FM 2499, turn west on FM 3040. Take your first left onto McKamy Creek Road. When the road ends at Simmons, turn left, keep going till you enter Murrell Park. At the stop sign at the park entrance (gatehouse/guardshack), turn right, go down road 1/2 mile and turn right on Green Oaks Drive, this takes you straight to the trailhead near the marina inside the park. There is plenty of parking at this entrance so find a spot and come on over to the covered MADD Shelter pavilion. MADD shelter is on Google maps, this is recommended use for directions.
**This is a more technical part of Northshore Trail with limited space between you and large rock drop offs during parts of the trail so please be prepared for that**
• The event start time is the gathering time. Please meet at the Northshore Trail trail head at that time. We’ll leave promptly 15 minutes after the scheduled start time (to give some cushion for late arrivers while still respecting everyone’s time). We’ll hike the trail and get to know each other along the way.
• For those that want to grab a bite after our hike, we’ll make plans to grab a bite to eat if there’s interest — probably at the marina restaurant which is on the water next to the trailhead we are meeting at. SO Pretty! 🙂
