Come celebrate the First Day of the New Year by hiking with us here at Big Bend Ranch State Park. Get the jump on your “getting healthy” New Year’s resolution and walk off some of that Holiday excess. You will be participating in a hike that involves all the State Parks across the Nation and directly enjoy and more fully experience your state park right here. We will hike about 1.5 miles round trip and take in spectacular panoramic views from on top of the ridge trail while hiking over to the Cinco Tinajas overlook and then back around and down to the head of the canyon and the first of the tinajas. If you do not know what these “Cinco Tinajas” are, then join us and find out.
The hike will take around 2.5 hours over terrain with loose rocks, so wear sturdy shoes, and bring at least 20 ounces of water, sunscreen, hat, and of course, your camera. West Texas weather is hard to predict, so layered clothing is your best bet. Please do not bring pets.
Meet at Sauceda Ranger Station at 1:00 on that Wednesday afternoon. Sauceda is located in the interior of BBRSP about 1.5 hours drive over a dirt/gravel road from Presidio. There is no charge for this guided hike, and the regular entry fee for 13 years and over is $5.00 per person. For more information and to sign-up for the hike, please call the park directly at (432) 358-4444. All are encouraged to stay over at Sauceda to have ample time to enjoy the park. Lodging can be reserved by calling (512) 389-8919.
We look forward to starting the New Year off with you!
