Rock Art Hike at Big Bend Ranch State Park

We heard from Big Bend Ranch State Park's archeologist about a neat Rock Art Hike coming up!

From Tim Gibbs, Park Archeologist:

"In celebration of Texas Archeology Month, Big Bend Ranch State Park will be hosting a public trail hike to one of the most spectacular (and otherwise access restricted) rock art panels in the Big Bend Region. The hike is a total of about seven miles over fairly rough terrain with no natural shade or water. Participants are advised to wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, and a wide brimmed hat, and should be prepared to carry lunch, between 3-5 liters of water, and a sturdy hiking stick. The event is scheduled for October 21 at 9:00 AM in the Western part of the park (call for details on parking location). The event is currently limited to 10 participants, though may be expanded depending on the level of interest expressed by the public. The $3.00 per person park entry fee can be paid at either Barton Warnock Visitor Center, Fort Leaton Historic Site, or La Sauceda Headquarters. Call 432-358-4444 now for questions or to reserve your place!"
