State Parks: Hiking in Parks

Hiking in State Parks


This is Passport to Texas

More people are heading to state parks to hike. And our state park Guide Bryan Frazier says, that’s a good thing, because Texas state parks do not disappoint.

44— Our state park visitor surveys say that hiking and hiking trails is the number one amenity and activity sought after when people show up at a state park. That’s what they want to do. And by hiking that can be whatever outdoor recreation is to you: a leisurely walk with your children on a paved hiking trail that has no slope – we have that. We also have more challenging hikes that go into the mile high mountain ranges in far west Texas – like the Davis Mountains State Park, and those kinds of hikes. So, whether it’s a leisurely, relaxing hike, whether it’s a challenging hike – you can find it in a state park. The unique thing about a state park system is – it’s for the people. Get out and see the beauty, the serenity, and hiking might just be the best way to do that.

Thanks, Bryan.

That’s our show for today…with funding provided by Chevrolet, supporting outdoor recreation in Texas; because there’s life to be done.
