Fort Davis from above

One of our favorite hikes starts at Fort Davis National Historic Site and ends at the Davis Mountains State Park, in all about 4.5 miles. There's a rocky climb at the beginning of the trail, and soon hikers find themselves looking down at the restored frontier fort (in the foreground) and the community of Fort Davis. The trail also leads hikers through grasslands and a craggy canyon.

A trail map for the Fort Davis National Historic Site can be downloaded here.

An interpretive guide to the state parks of the Davis Mountains is available here.
