Kit McConnico – Lufkin

Today I went to Lufkin to help the folks from DET-TRAC and the Angelina Bike Club with some trail maintenance at Kit McConnico Park. I hadn’t ridden there yet and I thought it’d be a good opportunity to scope the trails out before riding.

Map Updates

Hey, everybody. I updated my Mountain Bike Rides map and my Paddling map with information from a few backlogged recent trips. For mountain bike rides, I’ve added a few trailheads of places I’ve ridden in the past year. For paddling, I’ve added some river access points in East Texas, as well as a couple campsites along the Angelina River. I added one hiking location to the Hikes map, Ratcliff Lake Recreation Area. You can access the 4C Trail from there, or simply do some dayhiking.

Angelina River Canoe Trip – February 2011

The SFA Outdoor Pursuits planned this trip for the stretch of the Angelina River between Highway 63 and Martin Dies Jr. State Park. I was stoked to do this trip. I’ve done a decent bit of paddling, but I’ve never camped out of my canoe before. My wife and I signed ourselves up and hoped for the best.
