Dallas Sierra Club: Day Hike at Chisholm Trail - Plano

Feb 26 2017 - 10:00am
15th Street
Plano , TX

Meet at 10 a.m. at the Starbucks on 15th Street in Plano, right off Highway 75 in the big Barnes and Noble in the retail strip. The trail entrance is only yards away. We'll walk about 6 miles, I hope. It's a paved trail. Maybe we'll see some squirrels and birds. Bring some water and some munchies, as it'll be a long walk, especially if it's warm.  It's beautiful and flat. Lunch afterward at On the Border, near the "end of the trail" at 15th and Highway 75 is an option.  Trip rated: Easy. Leader: Ginger Bradley, 469-223-7902
