Have you joined the Peak Fitness Challenge?

We've got a challenge for everyone, whether beginning hiker or experienced trail runner.  A joint project of Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Franklin Mountains State Park, and the Texas Mountain Trail, the Challenge allows participants to take part in easy hikes in Far West Texas or plan their training to ultimately reach the highest peaks in both parks.

Many of our hiking trails have some interesting history attached to them.  You'll see them labeled "Texas Mountain Trail Heritage Hikes" on the website.

Hikers can log the trails on their own, or tackle them as part of a park-led excursion.  Read more at the Peak Fitness Challenge website, or here or here! 

Join the fun!
