Join Us for a hike through the Turtle Creek & Highland Park Area. We will be meeting at Kalita Humphreys Theater in the front patio area. In front of the theater near Lee Park on Turtle Creek. From there we will walk mostly shaded areas of Turtle Creek and Highland Park. This is a hot part of the year so be sure to bring at least a quart of water in a refillable bottle.

PARKING: You should park either in the park or nearby. We cannot wait for anyone to re-park their vehicles so please pay close attention to towing signs, parking signs and hours of parking. Do not park at meters, they will run out before we return and you may be ticketed. We are not responsible for tickets or towed cars. Hide all valuables.
