Hundred-Mile Hike, Wagley Ranch & Monarch Motel
Follow along as a young adventurer tackles her first long-distance hike on the longest trail in Texas and feel her triumphs as well as her aching feet. Visit the Wagley Ranch, in Palo Pinto County, where endangered birds in hillside woodlands are right at home with a cattle herd on native grasslands. See how migrating monarchs turn a grove of oak trees into a magical monarch motel.

Back then, Texas had only 100 miles of paved highway.
