Event Description

New Year’s Night Hike 

“For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice.” T.S. Eliot 


WELCOME TO 2020!!  wait... where are the flying cars???  

While it might not look like what we thought based on the Jetsons, I’m super excited for a fresh start in 2020!

You’ve made resolutions in the past to be healthier and more adventurous, but this year is your year to actually make it happen, and good news, we’re here to help. Who do you want to be in 2020? What do you want to accomplish?

Put your best foot forward on January 1st and hike in the New Year with Bayou City Outdoors and HTXoutdoors’ New Year’s Night Hike! Even if you’re not the resolution type, we can’t think of a better way to kick off the New Year than exploring the back trails of Houstonians’ favorite, Memorial Park. As the Chinese Proverb goes, “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”

Call me an optimist, but I love New Year’s Day. For me, it’s like I get the chance to hit life’s big reset button. Midnight hits, the ball drops, and I’m all of a sudden, miraculously refocused and determined to check-off everything on my resolution bucket list.

One of those things on my list this year, along with so many of our other members, is to hike the Incan Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru. To make it to this UNESCO World Heritage Site, I’m going to have to walk 8-12 miles a day. It goes without saying that I’ll be starting my training January 1st with our New Year’s Night Hike.

I’ll leave you with another corny quote by C.S. Lewis to hopefully inspire you to join us on January 1st and/or any day after, “There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” We’ve got bigger and better adventures planned ahead for 2020, whether you want to stick around in Houston or travel the globe, visit our websites to find out more!


We’ll be meeting at the Rugby Field Parking Lot in Memorial Park, and heading out at 6:30 pm promptly, to hike some of Houston’s best inner-city outdoor trails. The hike will most likely last until 8 pm.


This Event is free for BCO & HTXO members and $5 for Non-members. 

Please leave your human kids at home, but feel free to bring your other furry ones. We find our four-legged friends can keep up on hikes and are less impacted by our undistinguished adult behavior.  But please bring poop bags and water!
