Hit The Trail

One of the purest forms of enjoying the great outdoors is to put on a pair of hiking boots or shoes and take a walk-about in the campgrounds, parks, recreation areas and private ranches located out in the hills of Central Texas. Hiking not only provides a great form of low-impact exercise, it also gives you fabulous opportunities to explore the rugged terrain of the Texas Hill Country where you can go to enjoy some nature photography or birding. Remember not to over do it if you haven’t been hiking in a while and always take plenty of water. Also, it is probably a good idea to obtain information from the site owner regarding the change in elevation that accompanies each of the trails. The last thing you want to do is to tote your dear old granny on a trail with you that has a 2,000′ change in elevation.
