Houston Hiking & Backpacking

 

Bayou City Outdoors loves to hike! We have several hiking events throughout the month including Hiking Buffalo Bayou. Also, check out our backpacking trips in and around Houston and Texas. We also take several trips throughout the year to the Appalachian Trail, Colorado, and other amazing back country destinations.

We follow the Leave No Trace Rules! Make sure that you know them whenever you go play outdoors!
