Join a park ranger for a First Day Hike on the newly installed Nopales Ridge Trail or on the Opossum Loop of the Texas Oak Trail. Meet us at the pavilion in the Council Bluff Campground.

The Nopales Ridge Trail is being installed as our first mountain bike trail. This three-mile trail is easy hiking with some moderate climbs and is suitable for families. You may want to bring a hiking stick, sturdy shoes, binoculars for wildlife viewing and plenty of drinking water.

If you want to go on an easier stroll, a group will be taking the Oak Trail to the Opossum Loop. This one mile hike is very easy and on relatively flat ground with no hills. You will still want to dress appropriately and bring water and your binoculars as you can see the birds well through the dormant mesquite and post oak trees.

After your hike, enjoy a campfire and hot chocolate at the pavilion in the Council Bluff campground. Then you can continue to explore on our other trails, or bring your fishing pole and enjoy free fishing in the state park!
