The Gay Outdoor Club goes to the Cross Timbers Trail for Backpacking weekends.
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.
