Let us reprise this trip I cancelled a few weeks ago. This trip will be about 7 miles and possibly longer according to membership interests.
Trip Description: We will meet at 10:00 AM, ready to launch by 10:30 AM, at the boat ramp on Hwy. 3, Dickinson, Texas. There are full bathroom facilities at Paul Hopkins Park on FM 517, on the way to the put-in. There usually is a porta-can at the put-in. We will paddle for about 7 miles, exploring Magnolia Bayou. We will get out at Paul Hopkins Park on the way back for a bio break and lunch.
Directions: Take I-45 South and exit FM 517. Take FM 517 East (to the left under the freeway). You will go over one little bayou, Paul Hopkins Park is on the right just before and after the bayou which might serve as a bathroom break ((Lat 29°27'18.14"N Lon 95° 4'1.72"W). Cross at traffic light, turn right at next entrance to the park - restrooms are located at this parking lot. Warning! Second entrance may be closed for construction, so it might be better to turn into the first entrance and cross the footbridge in the park to get to the bathrooms. Or, continue onward to Hwy 3, turn right and travel about 0.3 mile to 48th St. and turn right into the boat ramp area (Lat 29°27'25.34"N Lon 95° 2'53.02"W).
Trip ratings are only a guide. Actual conditions will vary with wind and other weather; could become level 2.
