LBJ State Park at Stonewall Walk on Jul 6th

The Volkssportverein Friedrichsburg walking club is featuring their wonderful walk in Stonewall this coming Saturday, July 6th.  It is the LBJ State Park and National Historical Park Year Round Event (YRE), which is always a favorite. The picture above was taken by Carol Obianwu at this walk in the summer of 2017. It’s pretty out there!

The Lyndon B. Johnson State Park in Stonewall is about 60 miles from Austin on 290 going west through Johnson City.  This state park is directly across the Pedernales River from the LBJ Ranch.  The State Park Visitor Center contains memorabilia from President Johnson’s presidency and interactive displays about the Land and People that shaped a president.

This is one of the “Summer Sunrise” events, and staff will be at the walk start point to register walkers from 6:30 am (dawn) to 11:00, so we can all beat the heat. The Start/Finish is in the parking lot of the LBJ State Park Visitor Center. The address is 199 Park Road 52, Stonewall, TX 78671.

The walk offers distances of 5km, two different 10km, and 20km. The longer distances include the Lyndon B Johnson National Historic Park.  The walks are mostly unshaded, so bring water and a hat.

Please see the flyer below for all the details on this year’s walk, and we hope that you can make it out for the walk!
