Davis Mountains Preserve. This beautiful area north of Fort Davis' McDonald Observatory is open to the public a few days a year. We hiked the 1.9 mile (one way) out-and-back Wolf Den Trail. Recently maintained, it was described as a great birding location (we agree!) and "looks the way it is supposed to look." Pleasantly level for most of the trail, near the end it turns steep to allow this view of Wolf Den Canyon below.
The Preserve's Open Days and Open Weekends can be found on our Texas Mountain Trail Events Calendar...plan to include this special access only location on your next trip!
