First Day Hike- Self Guided

Start 2024 off on the right foot by strapping on your hiking boots and going on a self guided First Day Hike in Bastrop State Park!

Start the New Year off by joining in an awesome tradition celebrated around the country! First Day Hikes encourage people to hit the trails on January first! Start 2024 off by participating in a healthy activity and surround yourself in the peace of nature!

Stop by headquarters on your way into the park to grab a trails map and find the trail that is best for you! After your hike, stop back by headquarters and let them know how many miles you hiked and how many hikers were in your party. Texas State Parks will see which park had the most first day miles hiked and all Texas State Park miles hiked will be compiled for the State of Texas to see how we did amongst other States. 

We do not have any First Day Hike stickers to hand out this year. 

Headquarters opens at 8 am and closes at 4:30 pm, please plan accordingly if you would like to participate an add your hiking miles to our data!

Park Day Use entrance fee's do apply. Capacity limits are still in place so please grab your day pass ahead of time by booking online.
