It’s never too early to start planning first day hikes. You can’t hike all year if you don’t start on day one, right? The Texas State Park system has a handful of First Day Hike programs throughout the state of Texas that are a great way to take part in the nationwide initiative to get outside.

Here is the full list from the TPWD website. Click any of the events for event information. Featured Image courtey TPWD.
