Join park staff to walk the Island and the woods of one of Texas’ most popular winter spots. For sturdier souls, there will even be a trek to the famous Big Tree. Three hikes, ranging from 1.5 mi., 2.5 mi. and 4 miles will be offered. All the way to the Big Tree and back will actually be 8 miles, with a chance to see the Lamar flock of Whooping Cranes!. Hike is free to campers or with a State Park Pass. Otherwise, park entrance fees will apply to adults ages 13 and older. All hikes are beginner to intermediate in nature, and cover flat terrain. Hikers should wear sturdy walking shoes or boots, bring water and a hiking stick. There will be several opportunities for restroom breaks along the way. Binoculars are optional. Hikers meet at the park’s Recreation Hall.
