Government Canyon Dinosaur Footprints Hike
 Join leader Fred Loxsom to hike up the Joe Johnson trail into the heart of Government Canyon where we will view the 110 million-year-old dinosaur footprints and explore the geology, plants and birds. Meet at the Backcountry Trailhead (inside the park) by 8:00 AM. You will need to have a Texas State Parks Pass or pay a $6/person entrance fee. 
The park gate opens at 7:00 AM. The hike is about 5.7 miles round-trip and of moderate difficulty.  Bring plenty of water and refreshing snacks, and wear sturdy shoes for hiking on rocky terrain.  The round trip takes between 3 and 5 hours.  We will finish in time for lunch in the picnic area near park headquarters.  Contact Fred to RSVP and for further information at floxsom@trinity.edu or 860-455-3422 (text or call).
