LST Seg 4 (Big Wood): Saturday, 7/7, at 7:00 am
- (Note, I'm sending this note out relatively early because I'll be out
of town 6/29-7/4; a reminder email will go out 7/5).
OK, here's the scoop on the next LST run. We'll be meeting at the
trailhead parking lot at 6:45 for a 7:00 start.
We'll be doing an ~17 mile out and back in the "Big Wood" section
(aka segment #4). The reason for this out and back is that if we do
last year's point to point, we'd be running about 6 miles total of
road (blech tooey!). This 17 mile run is all on trail, and starts
out going northwest and then we turn around and return southeast.
I will be driving up there early and leaving water and gatorade at
the 8.5 mile turnaround (at the intersection of FS202 and FS207, if
you're interested). Please bring enough water/gatorade for the first
To get to the start:
From Houston, go north on US 59, take the Coldspring exit, FM 2025,
just past Cleveland, TX. Go left to the intersection of FM 945; turn
left going to Evergreen. Go north on FM 945 to TX 150 at Evergreen.
Turn left on TX 150. Go west on Highway 150 for 0.3 miles; turn north
(right) on John Warren Road/FS 202 for 1.7 miles; turn left on dirt
road for 0.2 miles to Big Woods Trailhead.
Here is a link to a map corresponding to the directions above, as
well as a link to the Big Wood section:
Since the one and only aid station will be at 8.5 miles, please bring
enough water/gatorade to last you for the full 8.5 mile distance.
Thanks, and see you'all Saturday.
