This One Hike In Texas Will Give You An Unforgettable Experience
It’s no secret that Texas has abundant nature to explore and that most of said nature is breathtakingly beautiful. There are so many places to go hiking where the scenery will stop you in your tracks and make you feel as if you’d be content doing nothing else but admiring your surroundings for the rest of eternity. Because of this, it’s rather difficult to deem one place “THE best” hiking destination in the state – but not impossible. I’ve chosen the Lost Maples State Natural Area, because when fall rolls around and the trail becomes a canopy of vibrant reds, golds, and greens, I can’t think of anywhere else that makes me thank my lucky stars I’m from Texas quite like this gem.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
