State Parks Myth #2–Only For Extreme Sports

This is Passport to Texas

If you’ve never spent time in a state park, it’s easy to come up with all kinds of reasons why they may not be for you. Our Stat Park guide, Bryan Frazier, says one myth about parks is that in order to get the most out of the experience—you have to go extreme.

And the good thing about state parks in Texas is, if you like those kinds of extreme activities—the mountain climbing, or the mountain biking—we have some pretty technical things where you can actually enjoy just about as an extreme experience as you want.

But, for the other people who just want to get away and relax, that’s the number one activity in state parks—relaxing and distressing. And so, we like to say, whatever outdoor recreation is to you, you can find it in a Texas State park.

And it can just be something as simple as rejuvenating yourself on a nature hike or it can be something as thrilling as canoeing and kayaking down some pretty swift rivers.

So, we don’t want people to be intimidated of the outdoors. We’ve got pretty much everything you’re looking for, whether it’s just a nice little walk, or something more than that at a state park in Texas.

Thanks, Bryan.
