Hike to Indian Monument August 30

High atop the bluff on the south side of Houston and hidden amongst the dense tree canopy lies a large and interesting rock formation locally known as “Indian Monument.” There is no known connection to Native Americans, but the hike and formation are intriguing nonetheless. The trek requires a significant degree of physical prowess as the trail is steep and long.

If you’re up for the challenge, meet at the Houston Nature Center at 7 p.m. sharp to carpool to South Park to the beginning of the trail. Wear long pants, good hiking shoes, and be prepared for mosquitoes, gnats and ticks. The hike will be cancelled if it rains that day due to the resulting muddy and slippery conditions. Cancellations will be posted on the Nature Center’s Facebook page as well as on the answering machine.

This program is free and open to the public, but donations are encouraged. The Houston Nature Center is located one block north of the intersection of Highways 16 and 76 in Houston on West Plum Street. For more information contact the Center at 507-896-4668 or nature@acegroup.cc.
