Hike with an “altitude” over the Columbus Day weekend with the West Texas Trail Walkers (WTTW) in Big Bend, Texas. This marks our 40th year as a club hiking in the remote national and state parks in west Texas. The hikes this October are along the “Big Bend” of the Rio Grande in one of the most isolated and ruggedly beautiful areas of America.

Both the Big Bend National Park (BBNP) and the Big Bend Ranch State Park (BBRSP) are strictly limiting the size of group hikes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To comply with these restrictions, WTTW will be offering 5 sanctioned walks that can be hiked any day, any time over the six days from October 5 through October 10. Sign-in one time at the registration tables, get your books stamped and then enjoy the week hiking the sanctioned trails in the national and state parks on your own. Don’t forget to come back for the Friday night Happy Hour and the Saturday BBQ dinner at the Big Bend Resort and Adventure Motel.
