Ring in the New Year right with a First Day Hike! Join our rangers for a brisk, evening hike on the CCC and Triassic Trails right as the sun sets over the rim of the canyon!

State Parks Centennial logo  Participants will be hiking along the CCC and Triassic Trails (Approximately 1 mile one way) for around 1 hour as we share stories of the tradition of First Day Hikes and of the significance of starting fresh as the calendar turns to a new year. 

Things You Should Know: 

  • Meet: At the Triassic Trailhead. It’ll be on your right, just before the hill leading into the canyon. Alternative parking will be available at the Visitor Center/Coronado Lodge and Overlook parking lot. A free shuttle will be provided to and from the Triassic Trailhead for those parked at the Visitor Center/Coronado Lodge and Overlook parking lot.
  • Bring: Comfortable walking/hiking shoes or boots (they will get sandy), 1 liter of water per person per mile, and weather appropriate clothing (jackets, etc.). You may also want to bring a Headlamp/Flashlight for after sunset.
  • Cost: Included with admission to the park. Park admission is free with a Texas State Park Pass (purchased before event).

Remember to pay with a self-service envelope at headquarters or reserve a day pass before arriving!
