Circle Trail Tour May 3

We are so fortunate to have hiking/biking trails in Wichita Falls. Although not yet complete, the trail will eventually form a circle around the city and be about 23 miles long. 

A special event coming up will highlight a 14-mile section of the trail between Lake Wichita Park and Lucy Park. The City of Wichita Falls is holding a Circle Trail Tour on Saturday, May 3, 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM. This is a free event. Although  this event is being held to celebrate national Bike Month, you can walk, run, skateboard or rollerblade the trail.

There will be 10 sponsored “cheer stops” hosted by local organizations including: Bike Safe Wichita Falls, Texas Parks and Wildlife, German-American Club, Hotter ‘n Hell Hundred, The Bike Stop, YMCA, Texas Medical Association, Riverside Cycling Center, Wichita County Medical Alliance, Wee-Chi-Tah Trail Race, East of the Falls CDC and Wichita County Sheriff’s Office Citizens Academy.

Each stop will provide drinks and snacks. Some stops are planning entertainment, games and demonstrations. Participants can also pick up a passport from any sponsor, which can then be stamped at each stop and turned in for a chance to win prizes. The event will be officially start at 10:am at Lucy Park but participants can begin at any point along the route. 

For more information please contact the Public Information Office at 761-7401.

I am wondering if I can manage to walk the 14 mile trail in 5 hours. Hmmmm. Well. at least part of it. Hope to see some of you out there.
