Come out on Saturday, June 7 and celebrate this year’s National Trails Day by hiking with us here at Big Bend Ranch State Park. National Trails Day is a nationwide celebration of trails and how they can help you more fully experience and enjoy our parks. We will hike about 1.5 miles round trip and take in the spectacular panoramic views from the 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 about 2.5 hours over terrain with loose rocks, so wear sturdy hiking shoes, bring at least 20 ounces of water, sunscreen, hat, long pants, long-sleeved shirt, and, of course, your camera.
Meet at the Sauceda Headquarters at 8:45 on that Saturday morning. 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 park entry fee for 13 years and over is $3.00 per person. For more information and sign-up for the hike, please call the park directly at (432) 358-4444 by June 4. 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 sharing our park trails with you!
