At a Glance

The arid and semi-arid expanses of West Texas are home to some of the most striking and fascinating natural areas in the state, places that reward curious adventurers who hike their trails with gifts of learning and beauty. See for yourself as you hike the wilds of West Texas, from the cool and forested Davis Mountains — where you discover the unique flora and fauna of its “sky island” above the Chihuahuan Desert — to Big Bend National Park — where you experience three ecosystems along the Rio Grande, on the desert floor and in the Chisos Mountains.
