Looking for a slow-paced, mid-week expedition? This is the hike for you! Open to adventurers of all ages and abilities.

This week we will be enjoying the sights and sounds of Nature Walk trail, an easy trail of 0.75 miles in the Tom Mays unit of Franklin Mountains State Park. This short distance trail meanders through arroyos and hills to give a great introduction to desert plants and wildlife for kids, beginner hikers, and wildlife enthusiasts alike. The bird blind at the beginning of the trail is always a good spot for nature viewing!

Reservations required; to reserve your spot, call the office at (915) 566-6441.

Bring: water, snacks, hiking boots/shoes, and comfortable clothes.

Optional: binoculars, hiking stick, camera, and a map.

Fee: $8 for adults 13 years old and up; $3 for Texas State Park Pass holders, and $1 for children between the ages of 5-12 years old.
