I thought it might be fun to take an early morning hike and then dash over to Mimi's, for whoever's interested in doing so, and get some brunch to replenish from the hike.
Please be aware that the terrain is rural. So please wear appropriate shoes. Even though it's an early start it is summer in Texas so make sure and bring plenty of water!
I've always wanted to hike at Friedrich but just never made it over there. It's hard to leave one's "Bubble". Friedrich Wilderness Park offers approximately 10 miles of hiking trails with varying degrees of difficulty. It is home for rare birds, terrestrial orchids, steep hills and deep canyons. It is internationally known for bird watching. Perched on the edge if the Balcones Escarpment, Friedrich is a nesting site for two federally listed endangered species of birds: the Black-capped Vireo and the Golden-cheeked Warbler.
Restrooms and water fountains are found at the entrance to the park. Visitors are encouraged to bring water bottles for longer hikes in warm weather. In order to protect this wilderness area, it is important to observe the following rules:
no smoking on trails,
Stay on designated trails.
Pedestrians only please; roller blades, skateboards, scooters, bicycles, etc., are not allowed.
To protect the endangered species, pets, including dogs, are not allowed.
