The last week of March and the first week of April should be the prime time to see Texas bluebonnets. And one of the best places to see the bluebonnets is in and around the Chappell Hill area. Join the Houston Section as we take an early morning spirited drive on the back roads to view bluebonnets. We’ll cover more than 50 miles of winding, twisting, hilly black top back roads that are fun to drive and challenging. First, we’ll meet for breakfast and a short briefing before starting our drive, in search of bluebonnets making several brief stops along the way.

The Houston Section’s annual Bluebonnet Run is scheduled for Saturday, March 24, 2018 with a rain date of Saturday, April 7, 2018. The meeting time and place will be at 8:30am at Chappell Hill Bakery, located at 8900 Highway 290 E in Chappell Hill for coffee and breakfast. An optional caravan from the Cypress area to Chappell Hill for those coming in from further inside the Houston area will meet at Buc-ee's, 27106 US-290, Cypress, TX 77433 at 7:45am, departing at 8:00am. To RSVP, please click the red Register Here button below, or click this link: LINK HERE
