The Gay Outdoor Club will be heading to the Cross Timbers Trail Sept 07-09  weekend for Beginning Backpacking/ Camping trip. 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. It begins at the Juniper Point Campgrounds and traverses the edge of the lake for about 12 miles one way. We will begin our hike at the Cedar Bayou Marina and hike in approx. 3 to 4 miles where we will setup camp. This 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.

   Contact Michael Railey or telephone him for further details about this trip.
