The big sky country of Texas calls hikers of all kinds to its trails. With over 80 parks, 56 wildlife management areas, nine natural areas and 28 historic sites and parklands, Texas offers a plethora of hiking options to choose from. Regions covered include the Panhandle Plains, prairies and lakes, piney woods, Gulf Coast, South Texas Plains, Hill country, and Big Bend country.
This full-color guidebook includes elevation profiles, sidebar tips, topographic maps, and a handy Hikes-at-a-Glance chart to help readers find the hikes and trails they want quickly and easily. The Big Bend National Park section includes some cross-country and undeveloped trails that even experienced Big Bend fans might not know, like the Alto Relex and the full 23-mile route from the Fossil Discovery Exhibit to the Hot Springs.
