Join the Buffalo Soldiers while they stop in at the beautiful Davis Mountains State Park and the Fort Davis National Historic Site for a weekend of memorable experiences. The Buffalo Soldiers and some of their frontier friends will be set up on the parade grounds of Fort Davis National Historic Site. Listen and interact with stories and the history of the famed Buffalo Soldiers, learn how to track animals as the frontier army did, visit the historic buildings of Fort Davis or even play a game of old school baseball with the soldiers.

There will also be guided hikes from Davis Mountains State Park to the Fort grounds (less than 2 miles, uphill and downhill on an uneven rocky path) given at 9:30am, 12:30pm, and 2:30pm. To reserve your spot on the hike please visit the following link and confirm your entry:

All activities and entry are free to the public during this event. As the soldiers are deployed all across the state it may be a while before they're able to visit the region again. Make sure and take part in this memorable, educational, and fun event.

We'll see you further down the trail...
